Have a great week,
Find out more about my art, my process, and me here on my blog.
This week on summer of color we had to use red, red, plus a metallic. Go here to get a look at all the other amazing art. I didn't have any red fabric so I decided to dye some. I covered a piece of cotton with a lighter pink red. Then I added some fake writing over the top in both directions with a darker fire red. I use thickened dye that is the consistency of honey and a syringe with a thin needle point to do the writing. After that was cured and washed out I added a design in gold paint with a fine line bottle.
I quilted a pattern of rectangles and triangles and added some gold and red buttons for accents.
I love the fabric that I created and still have more of that. I will be using it again at some point. I like the tone on tone look and want to created more fabric like that again too.
Have a great week,

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
