The addition of just a bit of black paint really added depth to the piece, don't you think?
While he was doing that, and we were yacking away, I was stenciling some deconstructed white cotton t-shirts that used to belong to C:
I am sending them off tomorrow to Marea in Australia, and then they will go to Susan in British Columbia, before returning to BJ in Pennsylvania and Judy in Arizona! Those old pieces of t-shirts will certainly be well traveled! I can't wait to see how they look after several months of globe trotting....and I wish I could go along! Can you guess what I will do with these pieces when they return home?
Today was a great day! I finally mastered my Thermofax machine, which I have had for almost a year now! That was one of my goals for the week, and I feel so good about completing it. I had two Round Robin fabrics that needed completion, so I made Thermofax screens for both. Here is the first one, going to Linda in St. Petersburg:
This is a beautiful rayon fabric, and the colors are really much richer than they show here. I loved the horsehead and the human figure, and found this wonderful cow print that I was able to make into a screen. I felt like the fabric was calling for a bit of black, so now it has it!
Then I tackled Judy's lovely piece of cotton:
It needed a bouquet of posies, so now it has several, in dark blue. Another lovely piece that I wouldn't mind owning!
Hope you've had a creative day too!
