Make a statement in your home by learning a new skill. One of our favorite techniques is Shibori, which is a Japanese type of resist-dyeing that is used to create shapes and designs on fabric. "Shiboru" is the Japanese root word of Shibori meaning to wring, squeeze, or press.
For the month of February, we created a fun color palette to use with our faux Shibori technique. To tie in with the color of the year we used three stunning FolkArt Blues: Thunder Blue
, Blue Ribbon
and Light Blue
and then Magenta
for a pop of color to create a stool, wall hanging, and planter.
February is usually a month filled with colors like pink, purple, and red. But we wanted to switch it up this month and make some of our favorite blues center stage. Check out the stunning pieces we created with February's color palette. Have you ever crafted using this technique? Let us know by sharing your designs with us on social using #PlaidCrafts.
