PAINT-A-PILLOW AND GIVEAWAY



I have used Cutting Edges Stencil to make an Accent Wall, Pallet Dandelions Wall decor, Give Thanks Wall Art and a backdrop for my daughter's Make Wish Party. Love their stencils! So when I found out that they lunched a new site called Paint-a-Pillow, I couldn't wait to try it out!  The Paint-a-Pillow Stencil Kit comes with everything for you to create your own designer pillows! So fun!
Paint-a-Pillow has a huge selection of pillow stencils that includes, Nature , Modern, Ethnic, Classic, Beach and Kids Patterns.
Your Paint-A-Pillow kit 
comes to you pre-assembled and ready to use.
Kit Includes:
Your choice of soft canvas
Your stencil of choice
Stenciling frame (pat.pend.)
Reusable pillow stencil
17”x17” Cotton pillow cover
Pillow insert: linen/down alternative
Mini roller and 1/2" stencil brush
Paint tray and stirring stick
Illustrated instructions
Free mini stencil and practice fabric swatch
One free fabric paint 

1. Shake the paint jar and stir the paint with the stirring stick. Then pour some fabric paint onto the paint tray. Load your mini-roller by rolling it over the paint, pressing slightly and making sure the paint gets evenly absorbed into the roller surface. A properly loaded roller should look almost dry, with paint evenly absorbed into it. Not stripy. Take care not to overload your roller! Less paint is better!
2. Make sure the stencil is secured to the frame with the bent down metal tabs. Start stenciling by rolling over the stencil, using light to medium pressure and slowly building paint coverage. Don’t press hard on the roller. Excessive pressure can cause paint seepage under the stencil. Make sure you achieve nice even coverage. If your stenciling looks a little blotchy, roll on a little more paint.
The edges are easier to finish with a stencil brush. Dip the tip of the bristles into the paint and do a few swirls on the tray to make sure the paint gets worked nicely and evenly into the bristles. 
3.Bend the metal tabs up on the frame and carefully lift and remove the stencil. The pillow cover now has to dry completely. You can let it dry inside the stenciling frame, or carefully take it out and put in a safe place to dry. You can speed up the drying process by using a hair dryer or a fan.

Now to the GOOD News!!
One lucky reader will win a Paint-a-Pllow kit of their choice too!
CONTEST ENDS ON OCTOBER 2ND!
GOOD LUCK!!
