Fabric Printing

This week, I am out of my sewing studio. Instead of bringing my sewing machine with me, I brought art supplies for both paper and fabric. I also brought some things to use on the introduction and January pages of my stitch book. Last week, my sister, Emma, sent me a link to a tutorial on using Gelli-plates to make a nesting type print. Just about every tutorial I have seen about how to use Gelli-plates, remind the viewer to have fun. And that is exactly what happened today, as I used the Gelli-plates to print on fabric. I printed on canvas, and I followed the the tutorial to make a nested print. Household items were used to add texture to the print. I drew and cut out an elephant to print in the center of the nested circles. I had more paint on me and on the table, but that was part of the fun. I might be using this first attempt with this printing for my stitch book…I don’t how just yet.
