Hey Friends! Today I’m over on the Silhouette blog sharing a little tutorial how to get watercoloring using your Silhouette Curio. You’re going to love this little hack, you’ll feel like a professional with a paintbrush in no time! Plus I’m also taking over the Silhouette America Instagram feed, I’ll have lots of fun stuff to share, I’ll even be doing a giveaway at the end of the day so be sure to follow both accounts (@silhouetteamerica and me @vfynes) to get in on the fun!
We’ve been seeing loads of deer everything for the last year, but mostly with antlers. I wanted to create something a little more whimsical. After seeing a cute fabric with a little fawn, I knew I had to make Silhouette cut file so I could paint one myself. I intended on just painting a holly crown, but when I found some faux berries and boxwood in my stash, I knew a 3D crown would make it extra special!
I chose to use this cut file to paint little deer, but I’ve also included coloured images so you can print and cut. Wouldn’t they make sweet gift tags?
To use this cut file to paint a fawn, you’ll paint it in 3 steps. Paint the outline in a lighter shade, allow to dry, then place the overlay on top and stencil in the darker pieces, then finally stencil on the spots. I chose to lightly sand my image after each coat of paint. Then add in a few details, like the white dots in the eyes, and a faint outline (painting on natural wood wasn’t the best idea).
I’d love to see how you use this Christmas Fawn Free Silhouette Cut file, swing by Facebook to share a pic of what you create.
