Welcome everyone to another great blog hop from StencilGirl. Today we are playing with Kae Pea’s(Kristen Powers) stencils. Most of you who know me and read this blog regularly know that I am a big fan of re-use and that I have a passion for our rescue dogs…In this project I decided to combine those two passions to make my thoroughly Mod Pet Pad…Luckily I have a fantastic model right here in the house to show you how comfy the finished product is..
I started out with a piece of fabric given to me by a friend from a rummage box at her church sale. I planned to use the felt with it, but the project too on a life of it’s own mid-stream. I used Kristen’s stencil Mid Century Modern Elements #1 and my small gelli plate and over printed on the WRONG side of the fabric in my favorite colors orange and turquoise and in this case some yellows and greens.
I used Golden’s GAC-900 fabric painting medium mixed with acrylic paints because I wanted this Mod Pet Pad to be washable. I wanted to highlight certain design elements and add more so using permanent fabric markers I added MORE. More is always better, right? Well in this case, yes.
You can still see an homage to the fabric itself showing through the design elements which I quite like. A quick stitch up and some leftover padding made it nice and comfy to go on top of my raised mesh dog beds making the perfect winter time sleep accessory. BUT remember I said MORE is better? Well Kristen also is the owner of Rubbermoon Art Stamp Co. and a lovely artist in her own right. I personally adore her charming designs and since she was nice enough to send us a couple of stamps, I had to pick and use this one on my project.
And my adoring Ryder obliged as our model so nicely. Pup tested, Ryder approved. Mod Pet Pad….more is a good thing.
Jump on board and visit all these wonderful artists to see their projects. I am always in awe of what gets created and by all means leave a comment everywhere for your chance to win some stencils for yourself.
