I’m continuing my ABC’s of Art. Today we start with M.
M is for marbling. I was obsessed with this technique awhile back. Check out all of my posts on ths fun technique HERE.
N is for Nature – printed leaves from foam stamp on ice dyed background. Here is the tutorial.
O is for Over Dyeing with Indigo. Using indigo to over dye really is a game changer. Here is the tutorial.
P is for Purses using my ice dyed fabric.
Q is for Quarantine play – my dyed rope coasters.
R is for resists. I love all types of resists, but flour may be one of my favorites. Here are some flour resist fabrics using dye. Here is a tutorial. I also have posts about using paint instead of dye.
Of course, S is for Spinner Art. Here is a link to all of my tutorials on this art. I used both a spinner toy and a record turntable.
T stands for Toilet Paper! On top of my indigo pieces is the molded toilet paper image. Here is a tutorial on making the TP pieces.
That’s all of the alphabet for this post.
Monday we had a new roof put on our house. The old one had been leaking for several years, and every time it rained I was concerned. I was so happy when we were finally on the schedule to have this done. It was a really stressful day for us with the constant noise. However, it was worse for the kitties. Ally hid all day. We finally found her squeezed under my recliner where she had to be coaxed out before we went to bed. Molly, on the other hand, ran around crying all day. The workers did a great job and were finished by the end of their long day – starting before light and leaving after dark. A worker came by the next morning to go over the yard again to make sure they had gotten all of the nails. It was worth one crazy day for the peace of mind knowing now if it rains we’ll be dry.
Since then both kitties have pretty much slept. Ally likes my new arrangement.
Molly/Penny likes to sleep on top of my recliner. I’ve been asked about the sheet covering the recliner. I bought the recliner a couple years ago and I find the fabric very hot in the summer and uncomfortable in the winter. So I cover it with a sheet. It looks bad, but feels good.
Have a great rest of the week. Looking for some inspiration, check out the Linky party at Off the Wall Friday.
I enjoy your blog. I am having issues with Blogger, Posting photos etc from my computer, as they have changed the process, and I have to study it further. Can you tell me the good about having a site like you have, and the cost? As I say frustrated as I have had Blogger for years.
I enjoy seeing what you are doing. I am downsizing and we plan to move from our home in the mountains for 20 years. The hardest is down sizing my studio. Don’t know exactly where we will go, but hopefully I will have a studio again, but blessed now with a 25 X 25ft. mess.
Again your motivating me to save my stamps etc. and supplies. the ideas are fresh in my mind. So thank you. By the way, Where in the country do you live.? We were almost evacuated from the Creek Fire in Ca. and are now major smoke dwellers. Hope you can contact me directly by email.
Lynda, I love this series you have posted! I was intrigued by the molded tissue paper, and must try that. Did you use anything to seal what you made? Thanks for creating all your wonderful tutorials, they are a great inspiration!
Judy, Thanks! No, no sealer on it. That piece hangs on my wall here in the studio and still looks fine after all these years.
Vivian, Thanks for your kind words. I’m located in Southern Indiana. I’ll email you directly.
It would be hard to pick a favorite from this blog. Your work is beautiful and intriguing.
Norma, Thank you for those kind words.
