Play date with Marcella

For those of you who don't know, Marcella is the other half of MidCoast Surface Design Workshops. She is just back from Florida, her winter home and we decided to get together for some fun. I am starting some new work and need a lot of fabric in black and white. It is one of the reasons I did the thermofax screens in paint and dye. I used a gelli that I made, and Plexiglas to make these fabrics.











Just picture these overdyed with lots of hand stitching. 

These next are monoprints.



And these are "stamps" made with hot glue






On dry and wet fabric



I used the parchment that I squirted the hot glue onto to press the "stamps" down on the fabric

  1. Looks like you two had lots of fun! I love the hot glue stamps... haven't tried that for awhile, but the glue gun is handy - may have to fire it up! And your monoprints are great. Can't wait for more on this project!
