DIY Screenprinting with the IkonArt Stencil Kit

DIY SCREENPRINTING WITH IKONART

Hey y'all! I'm so excited for today's post! Today, we're learning how to use the IkonArt Stencil Kit* to make REUSABLE stencils and our very own DIY Screenprint!

*(use code EVEYSCREATIONS for 15% off)

DIY Screenprinting with IKONART

I had used an IkonArt Stencil back in Kansas last July, during an event at which I taught. I loved the reusable stencil and I loved the idea of being able to design and make my very own stencils at home! While I use my Cricut to make stencils all the time, they are single use stencils. I was especially intrigued at the idea of converting the brand new IkonArt Textile Film into a reusable screenprint!

So I did just that!

Here's what you'll need to make your very own screenprint!

    • Canvas Frame (remove the canvas by removing the staples from the back or cutting along it with a craft knife.
    • Sunflower SVG from this Sunflowers bundle (which is currently only $2.50 WITH commercial license)
    • Printer (You must use the corresponding film, so inkjet film for inkjet printers and laserjet film for laserjet printers.)
      • Pro-Tip: Use either a PNG file or even better, an SVG file for best results and for a cleaner stencil
    Here's the video tutorial for the method!

    Honestly, my daughter is in LOVE with her new hoodie, and I love how easy it was to make! The best part, is that I can easily recreate it with my washable and reusable stencil and screenprint! We're already planning on making a matching tote bag!

    Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Fall Sign Tutorial



    Hey y'all! Who loves Fall? I DO! It's actually my favorite time of the year. Here's a fun fall-inspired sign and if you are still with me at the end, I'll maybe even have the free file for you! ;)

    My bloggy buddies and I have once again joined forces to bring you 14 Home Decor Projects, I figured I'd kick off Fall with my project, but make sure you check out all of the other awesome ones for more project inspiration. The projects are listed at the bottom of my post, just click on each name and it will take you to each blog!
     
    Since it's officially Pumpkin Spice Latte season, I thought I'd share this fun tutorial!

    **Though I was compensated for this post in product and/or monetarily, all opinions, ideas and comments are 100% my own. Please note: this post may also contain affiliate links.**


    I actually designed this sign a few years back for a Home Show Make it Take it Workshop, but I thought I'd share the project supplies list and file (free!) with you guys now!

    For this project you will need the following:
    First, sand, clean and stain your board and allow it to fully dry. Once it's dry, hit it with some of the spray lacquer listed above. To make a stencil, simply cut out your vinyl and instead of removing the background when you weed it, remove the letters, leaving the background and making sure to leave the letter centers. Use some transfer tape to transfer your stencil onto your board. Make sure to burnish your stencil before adding your paint so as to not get any bleed through. To get the ombre look, just pour out some paint/stain onto your palette in an ombre look and drag your foam brush straight across it to get the effect. Make sure to remove your stencil while the paint is still partially wet so as to not lift it.

    Alternatively, you can stain or paint the board and use vinyl for the lettering like these gals did at the Home Show:



    Either method looks great! Just make sure if you're going the colorful board and vinyl route, that you seal your Unicorn SPiT before adding your letters. You can do this by giving a quick spray with the lacquer I listed above, making sure it's fully dry before adding the letters using transfer tape or it might lift up your stain or paint. I personally love both looks but went for the stained board in a dark walnut, then lacquer, then the stencil and paint.


    As promised, here's the file in jpg format...just right click, save to your drive, then open up Design Space and upload it. You can find a video and post on how to import your own designs into DS HERE.

    Tell me, have you had a Pumpkin Spice Latte this season already? I will let in on a little secret...I don't drink coffee! I KNOW! IT'S CRAZY, BUT I DON'T! I'm a Tea girl. Tea is life. ;)

    Don't forget to check out the other 13 posts and visit my bloggy friends.
    Here's that list:


    Happy Fall, y'all!

    Spring Monogram Wreath under 15 minutes...Craft Lightning




    Hi y'all! I'm so excited to be participating in a fun challenge with my bloggy friends this week! It's called "Craft Lightning" and this time around, we're focusing on wood crafts!

    I thought this would be a PERFECT time to bust out a new craft supply that I've been obsessed with for a few weeks...Sola Wood Flowers! My friend Stefanie over at Oh! You're Lovely uses these cuties quite often, so I thought I'd order a few and give them a try and I'm hooked! (I just placed another order the other night because there was a SALE!)

    Here is the full list of supplies needed for this project (I've included links to Amazon in case you can't make it to a craft store):

    **Though I was compensated for this post in product and/or monetarily, all opinions, ideas and comments are 100% my own. Please note: this post may also contain affiliate links.**

    Steps:
    •  Paint your Monogram Initial and set aside to dry.
    • Position your wood flowers on your wreath according to where you like them best and glue them down. 
    • Add some of the spray stem to it to fill in the space a little better. 
    • Glue down your Monogram.
    • Secure your letter with some floral wire.  (I wrapped some of the wire around the 'S' following the same path as the floral spray to hide it.)
    • Add some ribbon or burlap to the top and hang it on your front door!
    I made a quick video to show you how to put it all together.


    The entire project took just under 10 minutes to create! Isn't it so pretty? Those flowers look SO realistic!


    Make sure you check out the other bloggers who are sharing their OWN 15 minutes and under projects all using wood! Here are today's bloggers:
