The canvas from yesterday...
The wind is blowing, the sun is out, it's hot! I'm going to paint some more fabric. I arrange all the color groups together. This is going to get used up within the next two days. Looks like a mess doesn't it?


I always save mayo jar covers. I use them for everything. In this case each one has a shade of blue. one white and a purple. I mix a little water in, not much as I'm blending the colors together. I'm going to do a blue piece with purple accents.. These are the shimmering pearls form the Deco Americana line of fabric paints.

I am using muslin. I wet it down and put the first shade of blue on and some white...


Then I add the other two and blend..this is a rough view...

I painted 10 yards today...gosh I have to go digging. I am using every piece of cotten and muslim that I can find. Here is the wire rack they go on fist..

Then they graduate to the line and the back fence from the line. I painted a black one. Why is it that I can't leave black alone? I have to put accents of color on it. It's still black but with accents. Even though I know black contains all the colors, I still have to see it lol..... These don't have to be ironed or heat set. They are finshed when they are dry. I heaped lots of gold sparkle on them while they were still wet. Needless to say, I'm all sparkly now, even after my shower. There's not much paint left. I hope I can find some more muslim or plain cotten tomorrow.

Gorgeous colours - really enjoyed reading and looking at the pics on your blog. I wish the weather was good enough here to do it outside!

Just beautiful. I am just learning the basics, I need to get some time to do some more experimentation! Lovely pieces - can't wait to see what you create with them.
