Doodle Wall Hanging

  • Gesso
  • Various colors of Acrylic Paints
  • Black Scribbles 3D Paint 
  • Natural Bristle Paint Brushes 1/2" to 1 1/2" brushes
  • Large Heavy Duty Fabric
Step 1: Just get some Gesso on the fabric. I drizzled it straight out of the bottle.  Move it around with your largest paint brush. I found that a wet brush really makes it move easier but a dry brush give more texture. 

Step 2:  since I used a dark brown fabric I decided to add some light brown to bring down the white a little. At this point I still really had no idea what it was going to end up looking like. 

Step 3: start adding your designs. I added some dark brown before I painted the first flower and I really was just trying to add depth to the background. 

Step 4: Keep adding flowers around the outside of the  Fabric. Thanks to my daughters for taking these pictures for me. 

Step 5: Choose another color and add more flowers to fill in the design

Here is how it looks up to this step. You can see the dark brown that I added to the background. I did not paint the them completely but left the background sowing through.  I used a heat gun to dry each of the layers before adding another layer so that the colors will stay true.

After the centers are painted add a few leaves, they do not have to be perfect you want the design to look free. I then Added more gesso to the center of the design ans made sure that it covered the center almost completely. 

Then I painted some flowers in a third color and added more details to these flowers with shading. I then painted spirals and Curly-Q's to add movement. 

Once I had all my design painted and It had dried for a couple of hours, I brought out my favorite black Scribbles 3D Paint and started to doodle on the surface of the fabric. 

I used the Scribbles 3D Paint to add details and outline the flowers 

I went around each flower and Curly-Q adding details with the Scribble 3D Paint .

You can use this technique to create a wall hanging like I have here or use it to create one of a kind fabric to use in your sewing or quilting projects. 

The Scribble 3D Paints really make it easy to add drawing to your work. Come back soon for another quick technique using the Scribble 3D Paint.
