She is so very funny - funny that she got photobombed here too - she's usually the one doing it!
Today I would like to share an experiment with you - recently I watched a piece that Kay from Indigo Blu did about stamping with the cottage paints onto fabric - once dry if you iron them they are colourfast up to 40 degrees. Anyway - I wanted to try so this is what I did:
I took a plain cushion cover and stamped onto it using stamps from the giant-poppy stamp set and also acrylic-paint-emerald-city-metallic and acrylic-paint-ruby-slippers and acrylic-paint-hot-cocoa.
I started with the border - I found it best to brayer the paint onto a surface and then stamp into it then onto the fabric. I did the same thing each time - then afterwards painted in using diluted paints.
I think the exercise was quite useful and I will try this again - on other fabric.
I would like to enter this into the theartisticstampercreativeteam augusts-creative-challenge-anything-goes.
Why not give it a try? I think its a brilliant idea!
I just wanted to share the bench with you too - I got this in memory of Shaun. I love it.
Shaun used the company (Classic memorial Benches) to get one of these benches when his dad died - that bench is in his mums garden. This bench from the same company - for Shaun - is in my garden - so I can sit and reflect on the happy days we shared. I think I'll sit on it lots.
Big Hugs to you!
