A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to head up the canyon and spend time working in my friend Timmy's studio. The day was perfect!
I decided to use my time to work on my piece for The Printed Fabric Bee.
October's Queen Bee was Jackie Lams of Studio Lams
and her theme was Science.
I decided to create some drawings of different things as they look at a cellular level. I created a thermofax screen of blood cells, brain cells, onion skin cells and eucalyptus leaf cells.
I tried them all out on paper before I moved to fabric.
Once I decided which screens would work best,
I pulled out a piece of ice dyed fabric as my base.
I really liked the look of the onion skin cells.
They almost look like an old brick wall.
The blood cells and eucalyptus leaf cells designs seemed too heavy
so I chose to use the brain cells in turquoise.
I made a very large piece of fabric.
I only needed a 12x12" and 6x6" piece.
I'm sure I can figure out what to do with the rest. :D
