Playing With My Paints On My Fabrics - Again


I have been rolling fabrics on poles getting ready to do some fabric dyeing. Many of the pieces I am using were previously dyed and needed another layer.

This was in that group but I decided overdyeing was not the way to go so I got out my paints and added some stamping to it.

It had previously been dyed twice. I think it is finished, but I will let it wait and see if I think it might benefit from another layer of pattern.


The fabric I started with for this piece had been previously painted with thickened dyes. I thought it was dull and boring.

I added two more layers of design with stamping. As I look at this I feel it still may need something else.

I am going to hang both of these on my design wall so I can study them and wait to see if they need anything else and what they need.

By the way, I started working on these late last night and worked until 11:30 p.m. – sometimes that’s the best creative time for me.

I'm posting this puzzle to keep your brain sharp on this lazy weekend! Click to Mix and Solve

The red stamp on green, what does it say?? This is really an interesting effect. The wreaths really add to the bluesy background.

I really like these with the stamping on them. Taking a fabric or a quilt to the next level intrigues me.

Peggy, I have no idea what the stamp says!
Yes, I LOVE that wreath stamp - it was so clear and so easy to use.

What an impact the additional layer made. It was exciting to see the transformation. You have a great eye for composition and color. Has this piece spoken to you about what it wants to be?
