So, I finally have my OWN Silhouette Machine! My first project for it was a stenciled pillow. I just love these Pottery Barn pillows but I will never own one because they are too rich for my blood!
That’s where my Silhouette comes in handy:)
I purchased this pillow at Target for $17.00
I used contact paper to cut this pretty butterfly stencil.
Then, I dry brushed over the stencil using Lamp (Ebony) Black acrylic paint by Americana.
To dry brush, just blot your stencil brush until it has just a bit of paint on it, then brush over the stencil.
After a thin coat of the acrylic paint, I peeled the stencil away.
I followed the same steps to add the middle of the butterfly. I had to cut two separate stencils to get the butterfly the size I wanted.
Done! Easy as that:)
I paired my new pillow with these two ruffled pillows I found at Pier 1 when they were 20% off! I love, love, love my new pillows. They aren’t an exact match to my first loves but they are exactly the look I wanted at a third of the price!

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
