I found this luscious snow dyed fabric in my stash and took a few pictures before I covered it all up with stencils.
I had pinned a piece of paper to the corner, telling me that I had used Olive Green, Azure Blue and ?, so if I ever want to duplicate it, I have at least two of the colors I used. I think it is much more interesting to use a very mottled fabric as a background for the stencils.
And here is my finished cube. I made each square bigger that the last time and when I sewed them together and draped them over the box, I thought it looked messy and that a slipcover was the way to go. I Googled "how to slipcover a cube" and found a good tutorial. The first time around it was a little big and I had to take it in, but I like the fit and am glad to have it finished.
I use Shiva Paint Sticks with the stencils in blue, bronze and metallic gold. I layered stencil on stencil. I like working with paint sticks because you can vary the intensity of the color and I like the way the colors of the fabric show through.
One more thing. I didn't have enough fabric to print my time sayings on, so I took a piece of the fabric and copied it onto a piece of white fabric with my printer. It looked exactly the same as the fabric I was copying. Then I printed my words from the computer onto my new fabric. After seeing this picture, I thought that the pieces of fabric with the words were too dominant, so I went over each of them with some Shiva paint on a stencil brush so that they blend in more. Much better, I think.
