What Jill did next

As part of my City and Guilds course I have to print on some of the fabric I have dyed.  this has been done using acrylic paint and expanded sponge blocks. I have included a paper version in three of them.

 These flowers were made with freezer paper stencils and a gold Markal stick.

This one is using both methods.

 Here are a couple more sketchbook pages.

Now, just to show that I do have a life outside of my City and Guilds course I have been toying with creating a small piece from a drawing I did several years ago.  I have planned it out using some dyed fabric and some from my scrap stash. I've painted some texture on the background using sequin waste and used bond-a-web to hold down the pieces. I'm just off to baste the whole lot together before I get out the sewing machine.  I will need to do a bit of practice before I start on this.

Have a good week.
