FREE FOR ALL FRIDAY - when you get to send in your beautiful art and I have the privilege of posting it! This week we have been talking about Creating Texture with Paint
First, some pounded fabric from Ginger Wilson!
I started with a hand dyed fabric, stamped it with paint and quilted it.
Started with a hand dye, added paint and fabrics I had applied paint sticks, and dyed silk ribbon and a scrap from another project.
Two pieces of hand dyes that I painted. Added dyed silk ribbon and copper. Machine and hand stitched. I am really enjoying this segment on "fire". -- Jane
Thanks, Jane! These are all such inspiring and beautiful pieces. I hope they are all right side up! When I imported them into Picasa they all flipped around from what was in your attached files. Love the abstract and organic feel of these! The first one reminds me of fossilized leaves!
And YES! you can paint either before or after stitching/quilting. Each gives a different look!
Here are three more smacked examples that for some reason, didn't download yesterday.
Thanks so much Ann! I think I could survive a little fried egg smell for results like this!
I'll check in tomorrow to see if any more examples have arrived in my inbox. If so, I'll get them posted ASAP!
And now....as this week draws to a close...here is your Moment of Texture (sent in by Ann from her recent trip - ocean side bench and redwood bark)
