Detail for "Facets of Fiber" Show Entry


I used the best of my gelation print session, collaged the elements using acrylic gel medium, and embellished with machine stitching. I then wrapped my canvasses with the images (all having to do with nature), and I'll wire the backs for hanging.
More later if I get juried into the show. . .

Surface Design Association

I appreciate the mention in SDA's newsletter! Yes, I do have a how-to article coming up in Quilter's Newsletter magazine. It's a four page demonstration of printing on fabric with my Tulip paint technique, and the finished project is called "Winter's Glow". There will be templates of the subject matter shapes (a birdhouse, a star, etc), and readers will be able to make their own wall hangings with this technique.

Project for My 4-H Art Kids

I got this house template from Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine, and the kids love the idea of making their own "Art Houses"! I printed them up on card stock to make sure they could take layers of mixed media such as colored pencil and various watermedia. I'll post more pictures when they finish their houses. . .
