My class is five days of Surface Design with Sue Benner. I am learning some new techniques and refreshing my memory on some older ones, plus using transparent fabric paints, which are all new and wonderful to me!
Here is Sue demonstrating the use of Silicone Caulk for stamping:
Below is Susan from Missouri, one of my classmates, and she is IN LOVE!!!!! When she introduced herself to me, that was the first thing she told me! Susan is an incredible artist and I have enjoyed watching her work. Here she is just having finished stamping some oak leaves on her tee shirt (you may notice that she is shirtless). And yes, Gerrie, do you see that she is wearing an Art Quilt Tahoe polar fleece vest? Susan is with three other gals, all having driven from Missouri, escaping the snow and ice there. They are trying to talk me into going to AQT next year...I may just have to give it a try!
This is one of my pieces from yesterday...not too impressive, I know, but I had to show you something. I love these transparent paints! I was trying out making little stamps from a common kitchen sponge.
Last photo for tonight:
Ummm, I think this was one of those folded and dyed pieces, that I went back and refolded and dyed again and again. Yesterday one of my classmates and I drove to the next small town and invested in some off-white bib overalls, which we are going to embellish tonight. So, I need to get a move on back to the studio!
Take care, stay warm, and SMILE!!
