Paint stiks on Fabric, SMQA.
Not the greatest view from the camera,,, but, ok..... It was a fun evening demonstrating for 6 rotating groups of women at our Sierra Mountain Quilters Guild..
I brought several samples, but also all the paint sticks and some plain fabric. I made a sample on black from the Star Builder book by Laura Murray, another great book is Paintstiks on Fabric by Shelly Stokes.
I just realized that I don't have a photo of my "star"... Off to put that in a later post.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
