They have been sitting around mostly unused just like many of my art supplies, so the plan is to use them and other stuff I have. My rules for this are; do one daily and use something I already have to change it. I've made a list of things to do, there's about 30 things on the list so there may be some repeated techniques, but no two will be alike. I have no expectations of creating a finished product from these, they are going into a basket as I make them. I just want to experiment and see what I can do. The first seven are done.
#1 stapled, soaked in vinegar and left to dry over night
#2 leftover printed TAP (transfer artist paper) from the weekly leaf
#3 embossing fluid stamped with old type and embossing powder added
#4 leftover fusible scraps
#5 leftover dye soaked paper towel, hand stitching
#6 painted with excess paint on a brayer then beaded
#7drawing with charcoal pencil, colored with pastels
It's been fun so far, I'm sure as I go along it will get a bit more challenging, which is a good thing I'm hoping it is enough to push me into doing something new.
week #2 of the white on black set
Daily Stitching updates
Shades of Orange #296-#302
I'm finding this one different from my usual. The others were individual squares so I do some stitching on it and I'm done. This one being one piece leaves me with no stopping point, so I find myself stitching more and longer than I normally do. I also find myself picking it up and adding more to it during the day, I want to keep working on it. Also since the fabric was printed very haphazardly not intentionally at all I keep studying it to see how I'm going to turn it into a cohesive whole. So far I'm working on one corner.
