I created this art journal page for my friend Connie. It was part of an amazing round robin group project. (Both the group and the round robin are amazing. More on that another time.)
I really like the area with the script. I painted a coat of yellow, let it dry, then slopped on a thick coat of red, then took the end of a paint brush and dug through the red with random handwriting strokes. I first explored this technique in my workshop with Margie Woods Brown. And, of course, I wondered... how could I recreate this in fabric?!
Several months ago I purchased this "creative textile tool" on super markdown sale! I fused up a little sample strip of various sheer fabrics, felt and cottons and tried burning through the layers with lines, letters and shapes using the pointy tip of the tool.
I wrote "lorikeet" on that dark blue section. Hmmm.... generating ideas for the next 12x12 challenge. Can you see what I wrote on the far right? "Ventilation." Yes, I moved outside the next time I used the tool.
Here's a tiny sneak peek at what came next.
