I have a dear group of friends that I met in Italy and spent many Thursdays getting together to be creative and to go on day trips when we all lived there a couple of years back. Now we are scattered throughout the US and some of us get together via Skype most Thursdays for a group video creative session.
Last week I decided to just play rather than to work on something already started. I pulled out the wooden tjap I bought over the summer. It is a wooden printing/batiking block that is carved with a design. I thought it was high time I tried it out. I had some scraps of already hand dyed fabrics and had fun! I could have gone on all day, but had some other painting I wanted to try.
I painted over scissors, pins, and more sewing paraphenalia but wasn’t overly thrilled with the results like I was when I did it with antique Italian keys. I also overpainted some previously painted fabric in hopes of some indoor sunprinting and although it is pretty, it did not sunprint.
I always have a good time catching up with my friends and exchanging ideas as we work. I can’t wait to show you what I worked on yesterday during our skype session!
