Start by laying down some freezer paper on the working surface in order to protect it. When everything is prepared, take another sheet of paper and use it as a creating surface with the shiny side up. Next, decide on the colors of paint that you’re going to use and the design you want to create. Apply paint to the paper and try to be fast because the paint has a tendency of drying rapidly. After you’re happy with the design, take the fabric and lay it over the painted paper.

Using more freezer paper, cover the fabric. Then use the rolling pin and press down hard, rolling it over the fabric. This will force the paint to evenly distribute on the fabric. Do this a couple of times and then carefully peel off the fabric. Now all you have to do is wait for the paint to be completely dry and then you can use the fabric for pillow cushions or anything else. It’s simple, it’s fun and it’s creative.{found on designmom}.
