Unusually, today’s Dyeing to Paint was held in Ystradowen Village Hall which mant that there was no going back if any resources were forgotten. So….. there was virtually everything the group owned available to tinker with, and tinker they did!
Monica and Hillary started off experimenting with the new embossing powders and Christmas stencil with some good results.
Monica tried the stencil on fabric and card and Jan cut a tree on her Sissix machine and Monica then added a small glittery tree in the centre
And….. the main learning point from this exercise was that if you get distracted you might scorch your fabric – hey ho.
After a coffee and a chat Caroline was absorbed with print blocks……
As were Salinder and Keris
Keris also printed some beautiful leaves with leaves that she had picked up from Cardiff yesterday
Corinne was busy embellishing a wall hanging that she started at a previous session – which looks beautiful
And she even got time to have a go at the linocut printing
Jan had a productive day with her Sissix machine
And Isobelle played around with her glue gun and the heat gun
Chris was quietly engrossed in making labels for the many Christmas presents she will be giving. She was also enjoying the embossing powders and the Wow pen for text
Monica’s main focus of the day was printing with a linocut that she had recently made. There were samples in card and fabric
In fact, some of her samples were soon turned into Christmas cards
And finally, Hillary had been beavering away at home to finish her Chistmas Tree wall hanging – how smart is that!!!
So much enjoyment and looking forward to the next session already!
