C&T "lutradur" challenge canvas page


I am a creative troupe member for C&T publishing and this months challenge is to use lutradur. I love lutradur as it is excellent for cutting with a soldering iron as it doesnt give off fumes and is a lot more solid than dryer sheets and nappy liners. I sprayed the lutradur with ink first then applied various acrylic paints and cut it with my fabric master soldering iron. The background paper was a happy accident as it was the paper that absorbed the ink when I was spraying dyes..it has come out all rusty looking..very me!! The quote reads "seek not outside yourself Heaven is within" by Mary Lou Cook. I have covered the lot with wax for even more texture. So apart from the lutradur challenge this is part of my second canvas book. To buy lutradur or canvas books click on the badge to the right "I love fiber art" and this will take you to the C&T shop.

Stunning! I will *not* try Lutrador - I do not need another distraction. I will write this 100 times...
Thanks for visiting: maybe it should be inchies, twinchies and finchies ;-)
