Fabric Painting


Over at the PA blog this week Darcy has been wowing us with all sorts of things.  She made a fabulous bag which you can see here.  Now I can't freehand draw, so I stamped some images onto different weaves of fabric with black stazon.


Then I set about painting them with Fresco paints, and when I say painting, I mean just blobbing some colours on here are there, painting really isn't my thing, it takes far too long!!!


Then for the last couple of nights she has wowed us with a fabulous house of books which you can see here and here as it's in two parts.  

I decided to use my biggest painted fabric image and attach it to a card using a large zig-zag stitch done on the sewing machine.  I decided to distress the edges by fraying the fabric. But before that I preped the tag with grunge paste and stamped into it with a line image.  Coloured it with baltic blue and French roast fresco paints and then went back in with snowflake to accentuate the stamping pretty much like Darcy did for her door.

Considering I didn't know what I was going to do with it, it came out okay.

Turned out great, i really love the background, you got a good deep stamped image that shows up great through the paint. Looks a bit like a circuit board.
