Art Cloth



I have been doing more surface design on my fabric lately. Taking hand dyed fabrics a step further, and adding more dimension and visual texture to them with paint--stamping, squirting, stenciling, etc. I am currently hosting a painted fabric swap on Collage UnLeashed--where we are swapping 8.5 x 11 inch pieces of fabric using one or more of Traci Bautista's techniques that she lists in her book. Plus, I am working through Rayna Gilman's book, Make Your Own Hand Painted Cloth on A.R.T., so the stars are in line with fabric painting these days!

Here are two pieces of fabric that I have recently done. I used a combination of stamps, stencils and found objects.

I like what you're doing. My art club is planning an entire weekend retreat around Traci's book. Love your fabrics.

Love your fabric Elizabeth, thanks for sharing. Your work and eye for color is fantastic. Some of my pieces for the swap are a bit smaller then 81/2 by 11 but most are a bit larger, will that be a problem. Peggy
