Painted fabric


Before bed, I felt compelled to paint. I love when I just have to do something. So often when that hits, I make something quite ugly, but this time, I kind of like it. I'm not sure what the fabric is. It started out white and satiny. I used lumieres i many colors to color block the piece. I will have to do a second coat tomorrow, but I just wanted to share with you tonight. It's very shimmery and very colorful.

I took closeup pics so you could see the texture on this. Isn't it amazing? I overlapped the colors and where that happened, the texture is so deep. Here, I used Gold Pink Halo, Citrine, and Bronze. I also used a burgundy on the fabric, but it doesn't show in this picture.

I think I'm going to use some for collage work. I want to stamp on it. I see flowers in it, I see flourishes. There are lots of images I can see being used with this fabric. And I have a lot of it, so I might have to cover a journal with some as well.

Okay, it's past 1 am and I must get my tired butt to bed. Good night!

You always do THE most gorgeous and original things. This looks so rich. Love it. Fabric is so under-used in collage & cards hey? :0) Mel

P.S. Thanks for commenting on my faux bleach card. I just HAD to tell you that I didn't use bleach. I can't (and won't!) use it either. :0) That was just White Craft ink painted on.

Wow - so cool! One thing I love about your blog and your creations is how you are totally about the process, in the moment, in the present. I get so caught up in the end result, that I sometimes forget to enjoy the process. Thanks for reminding me of that Michelle!
