Summer of Color Week Five
This week for Summer of Color the colors were Candy Apple Red and Yellow. These are not colors that I usually work with except as accents. But I'm willing to try any combination at least once. I started by dyeing some fabrics red since I didn't have any fabric in that color. I already had a couple of yellow fabrics from a previous year. Here are the fabrics that I worked with to make the cuffs. I have a cotton in both colors and also red silk and cheesecloth.
I also had the chance to paint in my journal this weekend, so I'll share that page too. This page has gesso sprayed through a stencil in the background and then I painted with Twinkling H2O's over the top and added some text.
I hope that you have a wonderful and creative week and I will post again next week.

Amazing cuff again :). LOVE that you're able to dye the cloth to summery hot colors and add little laces on it. Charming!

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.
