Creativity Day

Today promises to be one of the last sunnier days for awhile as cooler temps (80s) and lots of rain are moving in. So we picked a good day for this.

I am washing up some more fabrics-mostly muslins-in a predye wash, and then we will decide on how to "paint" it. I am bringing along lots of stamps, pressed leaves, other textures too like old lace pieces, onion bags, etc. and different paints-oil paints, pebeco paints for fabric.

I still have not found information on using crayons-there is suppose to be a way to shave them on to the fabric and then they will melt into the fabric-I have read articles on doing this on parchment paper to get a stainglass effect piece, but can't find anything for fabric for this techniqe-so we will be experimenting with that too. If any of you have played with crayons on fabric please advise.

I found this article online about a workshop-and I was thinking of doing a similiar technique too. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0KWZ/is_2_9/ai_n26672514/?tag=content;col1
