Fabric Embellishing - the Basics and Beyond....
Check this great resource out. (I receive no compenstation or am affiliated in any way with this book or the authors accept I love the book! )
I have books on order for everyone so it will be nice when we all have a copy. By the end of this journey we will all have been exposed to all the techniques and may have a better grasp of what we like to do. Some may take it farther then others but that is the fun of it!
I have split the group into an afternoon and evening group because it makes it easier on space. Only so many can fit around my kitchen table.
I have to admit after a tiring week and weekend this past week I did not feel at my best but no one seemed to mind. The reason behind the group remains to help us share info with others. I like the idea of sharing knowledge because it makes us feel more of a community and less of a competition of artists/people. It also inspires me to keep doing.
It helps me to focus on being positive when negative or sad things happen.
This month we tackled bubbling and scrunching and tucks.
Here are my tuck samples ....
Here are some bubble samples...
My scrunch samples are still in the panty house waiting drying time.
My goal is to put the samples in a format of a binder for future reference and to use a couple of techniques this month to the finish of a small piece.
I am also looking around for some other ways to manipulate fabric so I am going to "pinterest" away so I can add a pinterest board for fabric manipulation.
Meanwhile here is some info I found on fabric manipulation....
Do you have any great examples of way to manipulate fabric? Do you use fabric manipulation in your work or rely on piecing?
Always interested to know!
I am adding this to Needle and Thread Network
