Fabric Printing at Home Blog Tour
About two months ago I wrote a review about the book Fabric Printing at Home written by my friend, Julie B. Booth.
Today I'm going to show you one of the things I learned from her book and then give you an opportunity to win a copy of the book for yourself.
I used a hot glue gun to create a design onto a toilet paper roll. I was impatient and didn't seal the toilet paper roll with white glue or a gel medium before creating my design.
I inserted a short roller handle that one can find at the local hardware store into the toilet paper roll. . .
. . .and used my 3x5" Gelli Plate as a paint palette.
I rolled the paint across a sample piece of fabric. . .
. . .first going long ways. . .
. . .and then again short ways.
I really like the texture this provides whether I go once or twice across the fabric and I'm gladly adding it to my art "toolbox." Have you tried something like this before? What have you used it for? Leave a comment below (either answer one of my questions or just say Hi!) and you will be entered for a chance to a copy of Fabric Printing at Home. The winner will be chosen on February 14th! Be sure to stop at Julie's blog everyday for the next two weeks as she will be giving away daily prizes, and then visit each blog listed below on the designated date to enter for another chance to win Julie's book!
