Check out the slideshow of some of the pages we did this weekend. I demoed, shiva paintstiks on Canyon river rubbing plates, Angelina fibers, dying using the Canyon river rubbing plates and screen printing, dying lace and other techniques using Tsukineko All-Purpose Inks and how to use a fantastic to appy them to your fabric. I explained printing on acetate and doing transfers and printing on muslin. We also stamped on fabric. I showed how to apply a napkin using Perfect Paper Adhesive. Teri demoed stenciling with Shiva paintstiks. We met from 10 am to 5 pm and some left to grab a bite and brought it back. I took a book to work on, but of course, never did one thing on it. We had a lot of fun and it was relaxing, even for me as the teacher!!! Blessings to everyone.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, Puff & I trekked to Charlotte, MI to The Hen House. Nancy, the owner, has primitive quilt supplies and taught us how to make these wonderful sunflowers. I promptly dyed some wool in bright yellow and orange and made another sunflower. This is a rug hooking technique. It was so fun I returned on Thursday and made this wool bracelet! Just what I needed...another craft to add to my addiction! The sunflower I made was put on a fabric book.
