    I was going to join in this challenge, but I think I missed something, are we suppose to play with some sort of painting on fabric?

    I was trying to make my own batik, but I don't think that is going to fit in, if everyone is doing painting. Have enjoyed looking at the samples though. Can't wait to peek in at your finished items.

    I think what you're doing would fit in very nicely.....and when you do something we all like to hear how it was done and anything you might do differently the next time. It's a lot of experimentation and all of the creations are fun to look at and learn from. I've learned a lot....just need to pick one new thing and DO it.....please share anything you're working on.

    have to report I painted hollyhocks on cotton with acrylic paints, then ironed both sides. I washed in water after I crinkled it up and paint did not wash off. I did not use soap, but don't usually wash my framed artwork.

    Chickadee. Could you tell you how you do that on waxed paper? I've never seen that before.

    Tata, very interesting creations. Thank you so much for sharing your work. I too would love to know more about your technique.

    Chickadeee, we are here to learn and create using anything to our hearts content and to stimulate each other. Please join us.

    I'm wondering if black acrylic paint could be used instead of black dye for the melted crayon batik creations. I cannot find liquid dye here, but the paint is permanent and might work as well. Any thoughts or experience with this?

    I'm also taking that class. I have learned a lot about shibori. I'm also taking a dyeing class from Candied Fabrics. Even though I can't do much dyeing any more due to my illnesses, I still want to learn more, and I'm able to sell on Etsy. Another Craftsy class I'm taking is Stupendous Stitching. My playing for this month is to learn how to couch yarns, etc., using my couching foot. I'm having some difficulty with learning how.

    I have paid for the Stupendous Stitching class but as yet, have not had time to take it.

    Okay I don't get into working with paints etc, but enjoy listening to you all chat about it. I just registered 3 quilts for AAQI and two are very traditional quilts with little bits of fabric. The third is more artsy. Here's my try. OBTW ST's poem is:
    Moon, worn thin to the width of a quill,
    In the dawn clouds flying,
    How good to go, light into light, and still
    Giving light, dying.

    My monthly project

    This is what I have learned this month: couching yarns by machine onto my hand-dyed fabric. This project isn't done, but it just the first step. I am taking a class at Craftsy, called Stupendous Stitching, and I can work at my own pace. I've really grown to like their classes.

    Everything you've done has worked into such a striking piece of work....please show us when you complete (although it looks finished right now).
