I made some simple stamps, then used a variety of of fabrics to show the effects of the paint on different weights/types. I made pearlised paints to give a sparkle of frost and ice.
After preparing the fabrics and stamping them I set out the images in a collage, and then fused them to wool felt.
Some are overprinted on already patterned fabrics -
some onto heavier weight linen, and fine, hand dyed silk.
As the workshop is about approaching mixed media without the need to use lots of products and expense, everything was found in my supply stash and around the house. I do feel that limiting yourself also extends your creativity. Having decided on my colour palette there were a few challenging moments - which stretched me - but these were the things I liked best when I'd finished. What do you think - does anyone have any projects where constraints meant success?
