Round Robin day two

Keeping up with the movie themes, here is piece number two. I started with this truly homely brown shibori experimental fat quarter. I couldn't imagine (really) anything that would improve the appearance of it. After dinner I stuck it in a small plastic dish with some dye and left it over night.




Even I was shocked. The brown and boysenberry are just amazing together. If I had planned this it couldn't have come out more beautiful.



This is one of my favorite stamps with Jacquard's Halo Pink Gold fabric paint



I made a stamp identical to this years ago and it "disappeared" during a workshop. I loved it so much that I made another. Image cut from foam core board mounted with rubber cement onto another piece of foam core board.



I tried a small rubber stamp spiral but it was too small and pressing the stamp into the fabric made it absorb into the fabric. I had a stencil of a spiral but couldn't find it so I cut another from a stiff plastic self adhesive Avery Note Tab



This was Pebo Seta-Color Glimmer Canary paint applied with a sponge dauber (Walmart)





Could I do more? Probably, but I love this outcome so I am going to stop here.



I love the crackly look of the Halo Pink Gold leaf.

  1. I love, love, love the skeletal leaf stamp. Or is it a backbone and ribs? I think you stopped at the perfect time. It does go to show you that you shouldn't give up on an "not so pretty" piece of fabric. Great Save!!!!!
