In this next picture I started with one of the flour-paste resist pieces I did awhile back (See http://quilterbeth.blogspot.com/2010/08/play-day-pictures-flour-paste-resist.html. This piece is the bottom piece pictured in the earlier post.) I used the dyes I had mixed and painted onto the fabric with a silicone pastery brush. I used an orangy-yellow, green, and red.
This is how the piece turned out after it was rinsed, laundered, and ironed. I don't know where the green went! Okay, what do you think I should do with it now?
Since I signed up for the technique blog ("And Then We Set It On Fire") I've tried some things that are new for me, and I'm learning a lot.If you'd like to see pictures of the shibori pieces (and explanations of how it was done), please head on over to the "And Then We Set It On Fire" blog. Shibori is the technique of the month. Click the "And Then We Set It On Fire" icon at the top right of this post.
I'm having SO much fun, and you can too. Try the technique of the month with me.
If you are a reader of my blog, you know that I've had a thing with birds this whole past year. Well, I took some more pics.
I just love cardinals. They seem to like the sunflower seeds I put out in the open "pan."
These little birds were trying out all my new feeders. I think the bird on the snowman's eye looks a little creepy. I think it looks like he is pecking out the snowman's eye. I guess I'm still affected by Hitchcock's "The Birds."
How do you like my snowman feeder?
