Creating with Stencils
I needed a 12x12" piece of surface designed fabric to send to someone and so I started with some dyed fabrics and stencils I created from my drawings.
My Gingko leaves drawing was the first stencil I tried.
I used orange Setacolor paint on top of a brown and orange hand dyed fabric.
It's a very light pattern and I think it may need a few more layers but since I didn't know what I wanted to do next, I move on to another piece.
I love the way the stencil has turned out from this drawing, and I think I may make a thermofax of it too, and perhaps that is what I need to do with the ginkgo leaves above too!
I had a piece of pink and purple hand dyed fabric that I used with some Color Magnet awhile back and so I stenciled over the top with Fuchsia Setacolor. I really like how the piece turned out but I didn't think it looked like the person I intended it for.
A while ago I drew this layered zentangle and made it into a large thermofax screen.
I used another piece of the brown and orange hand dyed fabric and screened the design using Jacquard Lumiere metallic burnt orange. This is a close up.
I like how this design prints!
So happy to finish this piece up and put it on it's way.
Amazing how quick it all came together.
Why do I procrastinate so much?!?
Is there anything you've been putting off lately?
