Painted Batting Postcards
I am hosting the Montly Art Technique on Art Techniques group. Basically, you just paint or dye scrap batting. You can see some samples on previous posts. I have used diluted acrylic paints, and also left over Procion fiber reactive dyes that I use for hand dyeing fabric. I think you could use just about anything--I am wanting to try it with liquid watercolors too. I am hosting 2 swaps: one for 3/3 finished postcards measuring 4 x 6 inches, that include some painted batting. I am also offering a swap for 5/5 squares of painted batting measuring 6 x 6 inches. You don't have to make a finished project for those, just trading the battings. So, I am looking forward to seeing what people come up with. Here are a couple of the postcards I was playing around with.
