Textile Arts




One more post and I will go do some art. But thought I would at least show that my heart belongs to textiles.....and since they are becoming a mixed media art form, I can add other arts that I enjoy. I did do a watercolor accordian book and didn't sew a thing.

your work is wonderful. I love the water color accordion. Did it take long to work on each section? Did you watercolor the figures on paper or is that cloth?

Thanks for the wonderful comments gals. I am still trying to figure this blogging thing out. Some of you asked about the watercolor book. It is really the Tim Holtz Distress Inks on watercolor paper. I just sponged the inks on, spritz the paper with water, held it up so that it would run and once I was happy with the look, I took out the trusty heat gun and dried it. You can always add more inks or spray it with walnut ink.

I followed you here from the Yahoo Artists Circle and I'm like you...I like fabric and textiles....can you direct me to any good sites / groups where I can learn more and be inspired?

I've just started creating so I have lots in my head and don't know what to do with it!
