Next step: I heat set my freezer paper fabric (see previous post) and used a skinny sharpie to add doodle details. I'm trying to get a distressed look for this swatch.

Freezer Paper Fabric Stage Two

I was looking at the cool shapes in our oriental rug, and thought, "What if I did freezer paper resist shapes like those?" I painted over the cut shapes, and let it dry. Then, I sprayed the fabric with water to get a wet-into-wet effect from my liquid dyes. Here it is so far.

Demo in Granby CO

I LOVED doing my talk and surface design sampler for the Peaks and Pines Quilters Guild on Thursday evening! Those dear ladies were so game, asked lots of great questions and I know many of them will walk through the door I opened and create lovely work. I welcome pictures of students' work emailed to me, and I would love to post them on my blog. Looking forward to coming back to do a workshop so that everyone can take home "pretties".
