Again, a try-out in my sketch journal and then on fabric. No, the two aren’t the same.
In my journal I used bubble wrap as stamp :
I used several colours : butter cream, gold and silver.
For my fabric, I started with my pastels, I watered the surfaced, fixed the colours with my iron when my fabric was dry. Then I started to stamp butterflies on the whole surface.
Again some colour fixing ironing ;
I found that my background was not enough coloured and I decided to use some more pastels:
I ironed my fabric while still wet and - stupid me – without any protection on my ironing board.
Now I have the most original ironing surface !
I do not use this board to iron my clothes, so this isn’t a drama. In fact I had a good laugh !
I’m not used to use candy colours but the result is nice : All those butterflies dancing between the colours made me feel joyful !
“Joy is not in things, it is in us”.
