Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
After an uneventful search through my stash for some background fabric, I decided to try out another surface design technique I had been thinking about.
I wanted a tone-on-tone, more specifically a white-on-white to provide some great contrast. I grabbed a half yard of my PFD fabric (which is a natural white, not a bleached white) and my textile acrylic paint.
So any ideas? Oh come on, you can guess! :-) I'll give you a hint: It comes by the roll, in a cardboard box and is used in the kitchen to seal up left-overs. Now did you get it?
If you guessed plastic wrap, you're correct!
I ripped off about a 12" square, wadded it up and dabbed it in the paint and then dabbed it on the fabric. Nothing hard about that, but I love the results!
This picture shows it pieced with some solar yellow fabric I dyed this past weekend. This is a work in progress, so follow along to see how it develops!
