A collection of painted pillows
Over the years I have tried to create a unique gift for each of my daughters. For 2017 I created pillows from canvas cloth and acrylic paint and I used designs of vintage Santas and red trucks with Christmas trees.
There were several different designs of Santa's and trucks.
They turned out beautiful.
If you plan to try this project it is best to stretch the canvas around a piece of cardboard so that it won't move. The canvas absorbed the paint easily since I didn't gesso it. If you want to use gesso it would probably be easier to paint on but would also have a very stiff texture. I would suggest you try it out on a small piece of canvas. Have fun!
