mixed media monday "play"
I really liked the theme this week..it was to play with materials rather than focussing on an end result. I just started to play with couching embroidery thread, then I had a go at tranferring images to fabric using matte medium. I have always wanted to do this and used the Claudine Helmuths matte medium with a transparency image and to my surprise it worked really well!! I have read so many people having problems with this technique but I now love it..I think the secret is to burnish the image really well. I also had a go at just writing on the background with quotes from "A thousand paths to enlightenment" by David Baird. My fav quote written on it is "An enlightened mind is always open". What new technique or product have you played with recently?
