One of Laura's current episodes is called 'Frosting'...which is about painting over your quilted pieces with acrylic paint! I saw Laura do this a few years ago and I still use the technique on my projects. Thought I'd show just a few that I've done.
This is my 'Art Diary' book I made...I free motion quilted this piece, sewed on some metal washers then, using Laura's technique, I used a brayer and rolled over the entire piece with white acrylic paint!
This is the front of a 'page' in my diary...
And this is the back...this time I used green paint. It actually looks like suede in person. Even I forgot what fabric I used for the backing and had to touch it!
Front of another piece...you can see on the left side where it's attached to the previous 'page'. I have four pages, each approximately 18" x 18".
And again, the back of the piece above is painted!
This time I used white paint, as does Laura most of the time.
This technique is so much fun! So if you're curious and want to see more...sign up for DMTV!!! There are so many video's to watch and learn from...I don't subscribe to magazines anymore...DMTV is the way to go for me!
Now off to make dinner! The word 'frosting' made me hungry! Yea, like I need an excuse to eat!
