These are two of the many I printed using ink, brayer, and I used a 12x12 tile to put the ink on for printing. I will post the finished photos when I add my papers. and stitching.

Fabric Paper

Spent the day yesterday Making Fabric papers.
I am doing a Fabric Paper Quilt swap in my Arttechniqnics Yahoo group. I have never done this before so its a learning experience in progress. I will post the results as I go along. The Idea for this was from an articil in Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine, May/June issue.
I started out with Muslin fabric and cut them into managable pieces. Then I used regular white glue deluted with water and sponge brushed that on to the muslin. Next I took white tissue paper, torn into pieces and glued them onto the fabric till it was covered. Added more glue. Next took papers in the color I was working in and torn book pages, colored tissue and textured papers and added those. Then another layer of glue and Tissue and glue again. Messy but fun. Lastly I used acrylic paints, pearl ex powders, Acrylic inks and painted whole thing. Let it dry over night then stamped with St
Staz-on inks and used paint pens for free hand sqiggles.
