I knew Shanna's main color is turquoise, so I changed the look around to fit her home decor. I also added a little vintage charm to her package as well. Before I show you her gift, I wanted to let you know that, I thought I took pictures of my project during the making of it. I was mistaken however. I was in the process of creating a tutorial on this same process, so the pictures you are going to see are not from Shanna's gift but the process is the same.
All my painted letters are free hand. I printed off a word or individual letters that I want to paint on my fabric. I created the words in PicMonkey. I took my word and I laid my fabric on top. Make sure your fabric is light in color and lite weight as well. This will make the process easier. I do have other methods, where I will show you at a later time, on how to do this free hand method on dark fabrics. Anyhoo, as you can see in the picture, on the left, I can see the letters which allowed me to be able to paint each letter with ease. Using a narrow tip paint brush, I was able to follow and paint each letter. The picture on the right, you can see the finished result.
Here is the Shanna's gift.I specifically chose Joy, Love and Peace. These words are related and also because Joy has 3 letters, Love has 4 and Peace has 5 and they would lay on the Christmas tree nicely. I am a bit A type. LOL
I also created this lovely pin cushion using a silver plated vintage sugar bowl. I love how it turned out. There you have it, my handmade gift for Shanna.
