StencilGirl Blog Hop — Kae Pea

19 Flares 19 Flares ×

Welcome everyone to another great blog hop from StencilGirl.  Today we are playing with Kae Pea’s(Kristen Powers) stencils.  Most of you who know me and read this blog regularly know that I am a big fan of re-use and that I have a passion for our rescue dogs…In this project I decided to combine those two passions to make my thoroughly Mod Pet Pad…Luckily I have a fantastic model right here in the house to show you how comfy the finished product is..



I started out with a piece of fabric given to me by a friend from a rummage box at her church sale.  I planned to use the felt with it, but the project too on a life of it’s own mid-stream. I used Kristen’s stencil Mid Century Modern Elements #1 and my  small gelli plate and over printed on the WRONG side of the fabric in my favorite colors orange and turquoise and in this case some yellows and greens.



I used Golden’s GAC-900 fabric painting medium mixed with acrylic paints because I wanted this Mod Pet Pad to be washable. I wanted to highlight certain design elements and add more so using permanent fabric markers I added MORE.  More is always better, right?  Well in this case, yes.



You can still see an homage to the fabric itself showing through the design elements which I quite like.  A quick stitch up  and some leftover padding made it nice and comfy to go on top of my raised mesh dog beds making the perfect winter time sleep accessory.  BUT remember I said MORE is better?  Well Kristen also is the owner of Rubbermoon Art Stamp Co. and a lovely artist in her own right.  I personally adore her charming designs and since she was nice enough to send us a couple of stamps, I had to pick and use this one on my project.

IMG_1210So I stamped all over the bed, because it is so true, I do love my doggies to the moon and back….IMG_1224

And my adoring Ryder obliged as our model so nicely.  Pup tested, Ryder approved.  Mod Pet Pad….more is a good thing.

Jump on board and visit all these wonderful artists to see their projects.  I am always in awe of what gets created and by all means leave a comment everywhere for your chance to win some stencils for yourself.  Now that a new year if upon us, check out StencilGirl Club and create something wonderful, don’t forget your Rubbermoon stamp’s too!

  77. Rebecca Buchanan says:

    Love this. My main medium is cloth and so love seeing the stencil and stamps used this way. And I love dogs (and cats). I was surprised when you decided to use the wrong side but what a masterful touch–it really worked so well. I’ve got to train my self to ask “what if” more often. Thank you for the inspirations.

  78. Linda on the Prairie says:

    The back side of fabric is often more interesting than the front, so great idea! And thank you for your rescue work, a cause dear to my heart as well.

  79. Barb Rogers says:

    LOVE this project and your use of color is grand!

  80. Carina Karlsson says:

    My Ranger says Ryder is looking comfy and stylish.

  81. Rebecca Clarke says:

    Oh my I never would have thought of using the back of the fabric, I had only ever considered the front. Thanks so much

  82. I’m just amazed at the variety of ways everyone has used these stencils. Ryder is a lucky pooch.

  83. The painted fabric is so cool. I never would have thought of this, love it.

    Thank you for sharing.

  84. A great reuse of fabric and a very original use of the stencils and stamps. Your puppy has a very crafty and artistic bed.

  85. Sweet little pillow! I would love to try the fabric paints with stencils!


    Great use of fabric and stamps…thank you!

  87. Ryder is a star!!!! I love the layered effect of the color

  88. What a great idea to use the BACKSIDE of a fabric! I’m sure everybody has some fabric that’s not a favorite & now they can go ahead & use it by just decorating the other side! I know I’ve got one or a hundred and one like that in my fabric stash! A really great use of the supplies & I’m sure you pup will enjoy his new cushy! Thanks for sharing! 😀

  89. What a lucky dog! I love what you created! Your blog is awesome also! How cute is this FONT???

  90. That looks like pup!
