I love adding words to my designs.
Lately, I’ve been working on a pack of “titled” pillows using my new favorite way to add words–stamps and fabric markers.
Here’s a pillow cover titled “Nesting” that I’m about to list in my Etsy store.
I used rubber alphabet stamps and an ink pad for the rough outline of my letters, then filled in with a brown fabric marker.
Love the look–
Method number 3 is printing with a fine tip, permanent marker. I especially like the way this text looks on sheer fabric. You need a lot of it to make the printing look like more than an accident. In for a penny, in for a pound, as they say.
I do love the serendipity of this method. Often, I just plunge my hand into my stash bin labeled “words” and see what combos come out.
So how do you add resonance to your projects?
