No time limit set on the prep
10 minutes only to stitch
Here is a short TUTORIAL
I have used the images from Days 2, 3 & 4
Days 2 & 3 were printed onto cotton fabric from www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk The deeper image from day 3was printed onto cotton that is washable & the lighter image from day 2 was printed onto un-washable cotton fabric.
These two fabric have a different handle & I chose to do this to get a good variance of colour, I guess that the washable one has been treated with bubblejetset or PrintAbility type products.
After printing the sheets were left in the warm for an hour to cure, the paper backing was then removed. The fabric looks like the images so no need to post piccies
INSIDE: Dale sells the most wonderful Starburst Sprays which I used onto a cheap calico. The spots are PearlEx Pigments Mica powder mixed with green ink
When all the colour was sprayed on I used a brayer to mix them around
When this was dry I attached it to heavy weight Lutradur with 505 spray glue
On the other side of the Lutradur I drew a grid 1.5 inches, then sprayed it with 505
The 2 sheets of cotton were then cut up into 1.5 inch squares
Now its time for the stitched challenge gulp - what could I stitch in 10 minutes - time to panic
I knew I wanted to use the motif from day 4, so I traced it onto vellum, cut it out & used it as a template & stitching from the reverse, just manged to get a few freeform stitched in the time
Have to leave it like this for the challenge but might add more & finish it off at a later date
