Happy Day!

It is warm and mostly sunny today and I've been painting fabric. This is the first time I've messed with monoprinting -- what fun! I love the serendipity of the way the paint moves around and blends unpredictably, but the texture where the bubble wrap lifted the paint is still visible. I do a little happy dance when I pull the fabric to see what the result is...

I'm also printing the notes for my agility workshop tomorrow. We've got a long way to go to be ready to compete, but I'm not quite as clumsy on the course, and the boys generally understand what my flailing arms mean. Fingers crossed I don't fall down or run into anything on my runs tomorrow!


  1. monoprinting is definitely fun! what kind of paints did you use? (i still haven't written the screen prep post, sorry! hope you are patient...)

  2. This sample was done with Golden OPEN acrylics. I used Liquitex, Neopaque and Lumiere on other samples. I'm going to give them a couple more days to cure and then will wash them to see which changes the hand of the fabric the least.
