Monoprinting On Fabric

Yesterday I tried mono printing for the first time on fabric. I used Setacolor Transparent Paints and these two notched spreaders my hubby got at ACE Hardware. I really like the design from the spreader on the left. The last two pieces of fabric I laid leaves under the fabric and rolled color on top. All the fabric started out as ugly dyed fabrics in my stash from a few years ago.

















Once again I have no plans for these fabrics so they will be added to my stash. I know winter will be here in Chicagoland soon and I will have a lot of time in doors to create.
If you see a piece of fabric you would like to add to your stash or use in a project please send me an email.
Have A Great Day!

They were surely transformed, & aren't they wonderful.

Great results with those notched spreaders - and some people probably think those things should be used for hardware purposes - what do they know (these may be the same people who think bleach pens should be used for laundry, not discharging...)
