While ignoring practical responsibilities I ran across a tutorial on using a Sharpie and rubbing alcohol to decorate fabric. The gist of it is to write on fabric with a Sharpie then drop rubbing alcohol on it. It spreads – and looks quite cool.
So I stared doodling and spraying, dropping, and smooshing rubbing alcohol around. It make a colorful mess. Alisa Burke’s Beneath the Surface class inspired the rest of the fabric. I kept adding layer after layer. I didn’t really like it in the beginning but then a few more layers and I fell in love with it. Masking tape to make stripes, little round found objects to stamp a pattern, 3D paint to add some dimension, circles, and then stream of consciousness writing in the whiter spots.
