Hi, Elise Buskey here today to show you a couple of Embroidery Samplers I made
with cloth that I altered using StencilGirl Stencils!
The stencil designs are so beautiful that they can stand alone without much meddling from me!
I used acrylic paint, texture paste, discharge paste and Softscrub with stencils to decorate cloth.
I also Tea Dyed some of the painted fabric.
The cloth will be cut into pieces and will find a home in the art quilts that I make.
I do not plan or design ahead of time. I grabbed stencils and supplies and worked randomly. I took photos of the process and added text to explain what each photo is about. I think it is easier to show rather than tell so I will let the photos do the work for me.
Here is the larger Sampler that I made. I am exploring color so I grabbed fabric randomly and sewed the pieces together just to see what would happen. I was surprised to see that I had only one piece of pink fabric in the whole pc since it is my favorite color. As I embellished the piece, I noticed pink cloth was my go to choice. Interesting that when I just randomly grabbed fabric, no pink was selected.
Below you will find the rest of the photos. Hope you enjoy them and please ask any questions you have.
