Silkscreening Your Journal Sketches on Fabric at the July Meeting of the MCBA Visual Journal Collective
The MCBA Visual Journal Collective is having a printing on fabric workshop. Read the full post for details: new time, new place, and a small fee for this workshop.
Right: A journal bag I made by printing a sketch from my journal onto cotton. The bag is approximately 8.5 wide x 9.5 h x 1.5 deep (inches). The image of the bird and the green strip on the left of the bag form a pocket that opens at the top of the Wood duck's head (Cotton and linen, with antique pearl button and seed beads.) Click on the image to see an enlargement.
I like to sew things which incorporate sketches from my journal pages. I have visions and plans of doing large quilts (lots of sketches, no full-sized product yet). While I work up to that I make other things like the journal bag pictured at the start of this post.
