Painted Patterned Fabric
When I’m painting chipboard, ribbons, die cuts, really anything small, I like to use a journal page, or in this case, a piece of cloth. Then when I am finished with the intended project, I just use up any leftover paint from my palette to fill in any blank spots. A bit of white paint and one of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s stencils create a fun pattern on top. I used a dry brush in areas to show the texture of the fabric. I used the fabric to make a “spinal reinforcement” for a booklet for an upcoming project. I was so pleased with the results I used the rest of the fabric to make more!
OMG! This is beautiful. I’m going to check out this stenciling business. I love what you did here. Such wonderful dimension. Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me discover yours. I’ll be a regular visitor. 🙂
Totally love your “spinal reinforcement” idea!! They’re just beautiful! The stitching is awesome too!
Cynthia, this is my kind of stitching – messy and imprecise. I can’t sew on a line, let alone a straight line. The photo hides my sewing skills nicely…
Wow, I came to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice message. Now I feel twice blessed because your blog is stunning! I love the way you use color, it’s like a fabulous playground and I don’t want to leave, there’s so much to see!
thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the triangle here – so powerful. I would not have believed how beautiful a simple repeated shape could be. I have made similar books – just love them.
Wow. I love the idea of using fabric as your table protector. Going into the must remember file. I just found your site doing a google search for using book covers. Bookmarked.
this is stunning!!! and such a wonderful idea.
