So, once again Laura Kemshall (DesignMattersTV) inspired me to play! I know, I'm easily led aren't I! Laura was showing how to turn your sketchbook work from your journal onto fabric. Well, this little old lady doesn't have a sketchbook journal, so I didn't have any pages to put to fabric. But I liked the technique and thought maybe a new piece of fabric might work better than the geese on my embroidery flowers!
To start, I used Liquitex acrylic ink to write on a scrap of white batik I had. The batik has circles in the background, which I hoped would show through.
Mary Shaw's stencils, which I really like.
After the paint dried, I mixed Liquitex soft body paints to a very, watercolor shade and painted over the entire piece.
I'm happy with the results and it appears the colors may go well with the embroidery flower piece. But that's for another chapter! Or post!
