Lyn mentioned recently that we spent some time painting fabric on one of Melbourne’s hottest days. Whilst we only lasted a short time in the heat, I got quite a few bits of fabric painted, stencilled and stamped.
As I sit and type this blog, we are having another of those very hot days and I am sitting and reflecting on what I have made with some of those painted fabrics. At this point all pieces are for the Made on Monday Challenge ie 5 x 5 inch. This challenge has seen me pushing myself to try new techniques and (I think) I’m improving some existing ones.
The first piece used one of Lyn’s stencils that represents a brick wall and I created a graffiti series. I loved making these pieces and using various bright colours and heavy stitching to emphasis some of the scribble I first did using IKEA Fabric pens.
I was tempted for a minute to keep it as a larger piece and not cut it up into 5 inch squares, but am pleased I did and love the final result.
Am going to play with stamps on the next painted piece. But more on that next time…..
