Hi internet. Been awhile. Keeping up with a blog is a real skill, hey? Obviously I have yet to master such a skill.
Excuses: Just finished up a wee lil feature film. 60 hour weeks make for a tired me. I always think to myself… I’m gonna write maybe a dozen or so posts and then have them scheduled for when I know I’m gonna be busy. Nope, didn’t do that. Ah well. Such is life and such is me.
I want to talk about textile paintings right now. The DIY styles not the real deal textile artist ways.
In my last few days off I went to the fabric store in search of some fabric for a few projects, 1. light weight curtains for the patio door and 2. fabric for a couple of throw pillows. So there I was wandering around the bolts looking for something I fancied and nada. I ended up leaving with some black elastic (for a different project) and two meters of some white cotton that was on super sale.
On this lazy sunday afternoon I was browsing my usual fav blog reads and checking out some pinterest. I love Pinterest (you can follow me here). And I found some great inspiration for DIY fabric stamping. With all the trendy geometrical prints that I’m attracted to it looks well, easy. I’m into easy right now.

All of which are via Pinterest. There’s literally thousands of tutotorials on how to Block Print/Stamp/paint/whatever you want to call it with fabric. Make your own stamp, buy a stamp. This cool Etsy shop sells stamps.
