Friday's Art Making

On Friday last I got up early and started a whole day of making art. One blog friend, Corryna in The Netherlands, had asked if I'd make her an ATC using the mono painting technique I'd used recently on my large "!" piece. So I set about making mono printed fabric. Then I decided I wanted to stamp it too so I made these stamps using craft stick-ons and foam board I had from my stash of kids craft projects. These stick so well you can even wash the paint off later and they still stay in place! I love the black stamped ink on the red and green painted fabric. Gold circles sang loudly too.
This material is linen maybe? I found it in my stash.
I like how the texture of the fabric shows through the paint.
I turned lots of this into nine ATCs which I've sewn together, and am
in the process of adding embellishments to.
To be seen later.
Corryna will get first choice
and then they will be up for grabs.
I mean trade!
I saved out a few large pieces of this painted fabric for my next
artysoulsisters and girlfriends sketchbook pages.
