a little more play from yesterday
A new set of Stylish Stencils arrived yesterday - it is exciting opening all these parcels. I thought I would have a play with them and Tee Juice pens. Ian was so efficient he got all the new stencils on the web before I had time to play with them. I have been diligently tidying the studio - ho ho - well just cleared the centre of the big table so I have a large surface to work on but I am proud to announce that I did clear it again at the end of the day.
This is the Mums stencil - on Khadi rag paper - using Tee Juice pens - the fat ones rubbed over the stencil and outlined with the fine ones. I know they are designed for fabric but I thought I would test them out on such textured paper.
Then I tried them on polycotton - really like the effect. So easy to use - and you just heat set with an iron.
Last night we went to Cantina 663 for a wonderful dinner - the food is so lovely and we felt we had been working hard. I spent the first hour of the day at the warehouse doing more work - nearly there.
Julie - the Cottage Garden threads are Australian - this is the second lot and Pam's colour shading and blending is fantastic. Big job for Ian to get them all on the web coming up.
