A New Blind Challenge

I am up for a new "Blind" challenge. Leilani is posting a 3 day challenge from one of my fiberart groups. I am looking forward to what it will become. The first step was to use a piece of light weight canvas and to paint, dye, stamp etc. on a 4"X 15"piece and then to fuse it with another light weight piece and to stitch it randomly. I made my piece reversible, so don't know what side I will altimately use, but tomorrow's instruction may give me a direction.

This piece I had taken masking tape and marked it off as a resist technique. I then used watered down acrylic paints to make a wash with the design. I just strait stitched mimicing the lines in the masking.

This other side was still done with dilluted acrylics. The fabric was wet to allow it to flow more. I then used a stamp and applied StazOn ink to it. I shall now await until tomorrow for the next instruction.

That will be a tough choice. I think your first photo looks like a piece of artwork ready to frame and hang on the wall.

This looks good and it sounds like an exciting challenge.

Saw your last challenge in QA, and I am now doing a similar thing with a small group of my friends. We are working to a theme and having a month for each step to allow one of the girls who is having chemo,time to recover from her treatments. I hall look forward to seeing how your challenge turns out.
