So I'm trying my hand at making my own fabrics. Painting, printing, stamping, drawing, etc. Just to try it out. I make my own backgrounds for my bags and totes, but actually having a stash of ready made fabrics to choose from, and embellish more if it needs it? That's what I'm trying to do.
I really want to take Alisa Burke's new online class (Beneath the Surface)- but it will have to wait. So for right now, I will draw inspiration from her, and do my own thing. However, I encourage you to try her classes. I love her teaching style.
So far, I've done a few. Just small samples. Nothing big. I have no idea how Alisa Burke does big pieces, they must take her forever. But if you do it for a long time, you get faster eventually, right? Right? Hopefully :)
These are just painted ones on 7 oz cotton canvas. Some of it primed already, but I usually paint on raw canvas. I'll probably make small pouches, or make a mash-up for a pillow cover. Will see how it goes.
Here they are! Enjoy!
