Eco-Line Ink & Gesso Background


Having recently purchased a set of Ecoline inks I thought I'd best use them.  I used a purple and a green, along with gesso to create the background on this piece of fabric.  I sewed all the other pieces of fabric onto it, added the buttons, beads and sequins and randomly stamped the words altered and believe.  Using one of my felting wool sausages I'd previously made I painted some wooden beads and added them along the bottom.  I can't seem to get the colours right with the photo, must be the light, or lackof it.  It looks more striking IRL.

Great composition. The fabric's taken the colours and the stamping really well, I like it.

Love how you are using those inks Sam - the purple and green, used so subtly are just perfect foils for the green square.
