I have received a "You Make my Day" award from Lise and Marion . Thank you both so much you both made my day.
I haven't be able to spend much time in the studio lately. This is always a busy time of year we have been more out and about than in.
I really need to get on with my judging course work. Module 4 is about using different fabrics and products. Well that's something I am familiar with since I have tried most things and am always on the look out for new things to try. I have been writing up about fabrics, waddings and stabilisers etc. I just finished a section on fabric dyeing, stamping, stencilling etc. The above piece of cotton was dyed using Procion MX dyes.
This is a hand dyed piece of abaca tissue. The colours look better in real life but you get an idea of how it looks.
This was my attempt at marbling on fabric.
....... and another piece. This was messy but the results are quite nice. Rather than go through the mess again I think I may play with this on PSP and print on fabric. The marbling inks change the hand of the fabric which I don't like. Printing it on fabric will be better.
