Hand Painted Canvas Pillows

Our you aware that Canvas Corp has blank canvas and burlap pillows, pillow cases and other home decor blanks ready to dye, decorate and embellish? The pillows come in a range of sizes and shapes for all your decorating needs.  You can create customized pillows for every holiday, season and just for fun.  They have a flap opening in the back and can be used to cover existing pillows or slip them over pillow forms.  They can be stenciled and painted with our Tattered Angels DIY & Decor Paint. You can add watercolor effects with Tattered Angels Mists.  Keep in mind the mists are not made to be washed, but most decorative pillows are just for looks.  Tattered Angels High Impact, Decor & DIY, Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam are all washable if that that works better.  You can use them to create pillows for the front or back porch that will stand up to the elements.   If you like the original fabric color, then add accents to the pillow base with Canvas Corp Flowers or Burlap Flowers and Fringes. With Summer coming, the ticking collection would bring a seaside feel to these bases.

Today CCB Crew Designer Valerie decided to use some baseboard mist, and canvas flowers in red and yellow to create a one of a kind hand painted pillow. The results are absolutely gorgeous! Lets scroll down to see Valerie’s whole project and make one of our own…..

I wanted to try to paint on canvas with baseboard without gesso, and trying this out on a pillow case was the perfect opportunity. At first the paint soaked right into the canvas for the initial leaf. This was because the paint was too watery for this material, so I decided to heat the paint while painting and it was perfect! It even gave a water painting effect to the pillow!
Materials Used

Step 1

Using stencil, draw the lines of the leaves with the pen.

Step 2
With a small brush in one hand, and the heat gun on the other, paint carefully the leaves. Don’t put too much ink on your brush or it will soak the case. Heat lightly while painting prevent the soaking. Don’t try to blend the ink, the heating will give a watercolor look at your strokes.

 Step 3
Poke a hole in the center of the flowers using an eyelet setter (easier than scissors), and attach the book knob in it.
Step 4
Adhere the flowers on the pillow with fabric glue or by hand sewing.
