Another project to share with you. I love the look of burlap and I love the look of printed fabric, therefore, I thought I would try printing on burlap using my computer printer. I know, this isn't new...many of you have already tried this technique, but I had to give it a go.
I cut a piece of freezer paper the same size as a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 in. paper and ironed it to a piece of fabric. I trimmed the burlap to the freezer paper, so it would go through my printer. I found the image I wanted to use (which turned out to be a bird silhouette) and printed it onto my burlap. (remove the freezer paper) I then cut two mats to enhance the silhouette and made the frame out of mdf board. I painted the frame with dark walnut, rubbed it with candle wax and then added a french grey blue top coat. When dry, I used 220 grit sandpaper to remove some of the paint. I then assembled the glass, mats and print inside the frame. Another easy project. I plan to hang it in my laundry room.
Just a note...is anybody else having troubles uploading pictures to blogger? I would have added step by step photos, but I keep getting error messages and can't seem to upload photos - very frustrating and very time consuming uploading just one photo! If you have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for stopping by...and a BIG THANKYOU to my 11 Followers!!!
