In an earlier post I mentioned I had been playing with printing on fabric. (see here!).
In preparation for the painting of the house, and upon arrival of some wonderful Stampin' Up items, I decided to revamp my terracotta coffee canister that I have been using for my utensils (I have become a coffee snob since we got our machine and so don't have instant in my house, no more, no more!).
So, the canister, being terracotta, was painted first with a coat of White Knight Tile and Laminate undercoat.
Then, when dry, I topped it with a coat of Dulux White Duck (quarter).
My image for printing was using the knife and fork image from Graphics Fairy, and also some text. I merged them together and played in Photoshop until I was happy with the results.., then printed away.
If you missed the previous blog, where I very briefly mention the "how to", here it is again..
- Using A4 print labels - just like the ones you use for envelopes, only A4 - stick this to your fabric.
- Trim the fabric to size ensuring there are no stray threads....and print away!!
Easy hey!!To embellish, I die-cut my printed fabric on my new (woo hooooo!) Stampin' Up Big Shot, punched a couple of holes and attached some lovely Jumbo Eyelets (again, thanks Stampin' Up!!).
Tie with twine...and there we have it!!
I love the result, so will do my sugar and tea canisters next.
Hugs to you all!! Come on over for some coffee!!
