Textile Tantrums

I am obsessed with fibres, thread, cloth, paint and all things textiles! Unfortunately I am also a procrastinator extraodinarire who spends more time reading, surfing the net and admiring the materials than creating! I struggle to translate my ideas into textiles - hence the tantrums!

    They are monoprints Lynda. Using a laminated piece of paper as the 'glass' I spread white acrylic / fabric paint out with a roller. Using a toothed scraper that you use for grouting tiles I made marks / swirls one way and then across the other way (i.e. horizontally and vertically) You then place your piece of paper / fabric on top and smooth over it with your hand. Then you paint the paper with dye or with the fabric I dyed it in bags! Should've done this as a post not a comment!
