Crafty Crusaders ~ Setacolor Fabric Flowers

Creating these gorgeous Fabric flowers with the Pebeo Setacolour Fabric Paints is super easy.
All you need is a some calico, Setacolour Fabric Paints and decorative brads,
I have created a template you can use to cut out the calico flowers.
You can download this template from HERE
Once the template is printed just lay the calico over the template and draw the flowers on the calico with a pen.
Paint the colours you want over the flower I have used Cherry Red and Buttercup on this flower.
The thicker you add the paint and more solid will give you a darker colour.
Spritz the flower with water and then lay another piece of calico over the top to imprint a second flower, this also blends the colour in the flower.
 

 You can keep spraying the original painted flower with water and lay a blank piece of calico over it to create an imprint. You can imprint more than one copy from one flower onto another piece of calico.
 While the flowers are still damp cut them all out.
 Then roll them up into a ball in the palm of your hand.
 Unroll them and layer up the flowers and then attach together with a brad. You will need a craft knife of poker to poke a hole through the calico for the brad.
 Oriental Blue, Chamois and Buttercup was used on this flower.
Orange, Chamois and Buttercup was used on this flower.
If you
want your flowers to be darker and richer in colour you can add less
water over the flower and don’t imprint off the original flower.

Zen Feather Girl Colouring In Printout ~ Crafty Crusaders

 Have you seen that you can get colouring books for adults now, it is a great way to relax and unwind.
I thought I would have a go of drawing a colouring in page for you. This is so much fun.
I first drew an outline of my girl and design in pencil and then went over the lines with the Black Mepxy marker and a fine black sharpie pen. Then rub out the pencil lines.
I have done it already for you here if you would like to print out this Zen Feather Girl and colour one in for your self. This is a great way of practicing shading on faces with different mediums.

You can download your Printout HERE

I have used Pebeo Studio Aquarelle watercolour paints to colour her in and added a few more details like the eyelashes with a pencil.

If you are printing the printout on an inkjet printer and you are using watercolours you have to be careful of the ink running. The image below was printed on watercolour paper on an inkjet printer.

I hope you enjoy getting back to your childhood and having some colouring in fun!

I know I did!

Have an awesome day 🙂
