Now to finish the ABC’s of Art.
U is for unfinished. This is a print from Pat Pauly’s Glorious Prints week-long class at QSDS last year. I really hated my quilting on it. I do have other prints in this series, but this was my favorite. I guess I need to print some more.
V is for vacation – Solarfast print from a Hawaiian vacation photo. Check out this blog post and this newer post about this interesting product.
W stands for watercolor. Drawing on fabric, stitched, and tinted with watercolor. I love using watercolor if I don’t have the right color fabric for my background. I also love the look of watercolor on fabric. Here is the link to the tutorial for this piece.
Y is for yellow. Summer Delight, which includes some of my spinner art.
Z is for zentangle-inspired.
That’s it. You will notice no X. I just couldn’t come up with anything!!
Meanwhile, I’ve been spending a bit of time organizing in the studio, dye studio, and in the house. That has really brought me happiness, but no art. Next week will be a good time to dive back in to the creative pool.
Have a great weekend.
Thank you for all the wonderful ideas. Unfortunately I have not got enough years left in my life to try them all, but all your inspiration definitely keeps Alzheimer’s away. Thank you ever so much. Heidi South Africa
Thanks for the ABCs. Like the look of the watercolors on fabric. Are they permanent?
Hi Heidi, You are so welcome and thanks for dropping by. Since I’ve done this exercise of going through my old posts, I’m wanting to revisit more and more of the techniques, but I need to really start sewing up some of this fabric!
Rena, That project was completed 4 years ago and it still looks the same. However, I would not wash it or expose it to bright sunlight. I’ve not done it with watercolors, but you could add some GAC 900 to the water to maybe make it more permanent but that’s just a guess. I say that because I use GAC 900 with Inktense Blocks instead of water which is suppose to make them more permanent. But again, it looks just like the day I painted it so don’t really think it’s needed. Thanks for the comment and dropping by.
