art quilt made easy, water transfer to cloth ....

first i painted a magazine tear out.
then i copy it to photopaper,
then i put wet cloth on top and use a paint brush to brush the water on and burnish,

dries and sewn into a quilt.the fabric used is bleached white muslin - it looks crisp doesn't it?  i don't know why that is.  but i like it.

Hey Lisa - So when you say "copy it to photopaper," do you mean using an inkjet printer or are you using a copy machine or laser printer? I'm gonna try this!
I'm so curious now as to what that 1st comment was! XOXO Susan

the first comment was spam about herbal vitamins or some such. i will have to start using my moderator tool.
anyway, yes, its ink jet copier - use cheap photo paper. i have found out though, tht some ink jet copiers don't work for this so far epson and brother work, but i had no luck with a canon.

what great effects! It looks wonderful, and could be a collage of prints. Inspiring.
Thank you Lisa

yeah they come out lighter than the original and also a bit rough looking which i like very much.

Thanks for sharing this great technique! What type of fabric is this? It looks shear.

Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

When I was hurt in that automobile accident my life would be changed eternally. Unfortunately that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be in pain for ever.

This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

How terrible was it? I has bedridden for 8 months, I had to have constant care and my clinic bills went through the roof!

Luckily, I found a good referral site to help me.

I will post more later this afternoon to tell you more about what I have been going through.
