A Quick Peek!

Yesterday I showed you my first freezer paper stenciled piece, and told you today I would be back to show you what I had done with it.  Well I didnt get to finish the piece, but thought I would show you where I am so far with it.
It is going to be a pillow, and the white parts will have appliques and some quilted words. Over the last few days the idea for these pillows have slowly developing in my head.
This wont be the last, especially since doing the freezer paper stencil was so much fun!  The worst part was waiting for the paint to dry.
My friend, Amy, who does some fabulous stenciling and printing on fabric, gave me some great tips for the stenciling.  Check out Amy's blog, During Quiet Time, to see the work she does.  Also check out her Etsy shop where you can buy her wonderful creations.
Give me a few days and I will be back to show you the finished piece :)
Hope you are all having a fantastic week!

Oh, thanks Kimberly! I like what you have done so far! Stencils are a lot of fun! I was thinking about the bleeding, sometimes when I iron there are bubbles where the wax just doesn't attach. Check for those and use the tip of your iron and press down there hard for a bit. It tends to happen along the edges of the design.
