Fantastic Fabric....

I'm demoing tomorrow up at the Craft Barn and this time I'm working with DecoArt So Soft fabric paints and the Ink Effects Transfer paint along with Kaisercraft stamps.
The So Soft comes in a fantastic range of colours and paints on beautifully. Here I've been experimenting on different fabrics, plain and patterned:

And here are a couple of cards:

The Ink effects paint is fascinating: you paint a design onto copy paper and then iron onto fabric. Of course I wanted to see how to use stamps, stencils, lettering etc. Here's one example of a simple leaf design transferred onto calico:

For the rest of what I'm up to, come along tomorrow between 10.00 and 4.00!

Thanks for looking!

Ink Effects transfers look intriguing. More info for those of us in the North who can't get to your workshop, please.

Lovely to meet you on Sunday Helen. We had such a great time I loved it. And the food was great too. I love your painting on fabric and then turning them into cards. Love all your work. Michelle xx
