Fabric painting

Yesterday, I painted a few pieces of fabric. I like the texture that I got in this piece by just crumpling it before letting it dry.
The next one is a detail of the piece I used to mop up my painting board. I made sure it got completely coloured, because I know these pieces are often better than the ones I paint...
I'm going to make some postcards.
I printed the fabric pieces with a homemade stamp...
Now, I have to embellish these.

That pink one is very nice. It's not one of your 'usual' colours is it? I like your little production line of postcard making :)

Great colors in these pieces Francoise, they'll make beautiful card.

I'm the same way....I think the mop up cloth/rag is always the prettiest. Love the stamped pieces!

They are all lovely. Painting some fabric is what I have been wanting to do, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

I love painting fabric and I agree the mop is nearly always the best.
The postcards are going to look great.
Hugs, Alis

I love the beginning of your post cards! Really nice work. And the painting is great -- also the mopping up!

Lovely painting/stamping Francoise! Makes me want to jump in and start painting! :)

What did you paint these with Francoise? I think they are lovely and a very useful way of making postcards too with your home made stamp.

Papoosue said...

yes, I wondered what you painted them with. They are just lovely! I like how you have used your homemade stamp too.

Ditto! Give it up!!! I've gotten a similar effect using Setacolor paint but not nearly as good as yours. What is your paint of choice here?

Françoise said...

I used setacolor paints!
