Playing with paint

Last week in Cairns I bought a marbling set and some other fabric paints at the Cairns Craft Centre (great shop, wish we had one like that here in Brissy!). Today I had a ball playing with fabric and paint:

After the painted fabric had dried I did some stamping and stenciling:

And in the end I had some pretty pieces of fabric:

I will use them to make the haiku ATCs - they have to be finished this week.
The optical illusion quilt is almost finished, I just have to sew back the binding.
I hope I'll be able to show it hanging on the wall in the next posting!

Ah - here you are! I wandered for a bit before I found you but it was worth the trip.

Your fabrics are looking lovely and your work is wonderful. It looks like you had a great day with paint!

It looks like you had a wonderful time. We're finally getting enough sun around here to do a little painting outside. Yeah! Love the fabrics.
