About a month ago, I experimented once again with painting muslin. This time, I used shimmery Twinkling H2O paints. The process was simple: put the fabric on a waterproof surface, paint it with plain water to wet, then paint with the paint and let dry. I didn't get fancy with the colors or try blending...just wanted to see if the shimmer would show on fabric.
It does, but not hugely. In the future, I might add the Tattered Angels glimmer mist over the Twinkling H2Os.
Here's the card I've made with the painted fabric. I love the subtle texture of the fabric with the smooth white card stock, and the blue is just so pretty!
The white-on-white frame allows the blue fabric to take center stage.
For those of you who don't read the comments on my posts, I wanted to share Joan's story from the colander post. It's adorable.
"My Polish grandmother came over on the boat through Ellis island and got a job as a housekeeper. One of her tasks was to buy a colander. Since she didn't know the english word, she went to the store and asked for a "Macaroni stop, Water go". So your post brought a smile to me today."
Joan brought a smile to me with this, and I wanted to share!
