Parts of the Whole

With my inchies completed I started the design of this wall hanging. The background fabric was repurposed cotton which I painted and hand stamped. The subtle colors of the background and variegated threads blend into a rich foundation. Layers of distressed fabrics form a textured surface for the small quilted squares.

I really like the way that the inchies tumble off the piece at the side. A lovely piece.

Royce - that's beautiful! BTW, what type of paint/ink do you use to stamp on fabric? Do you use a regular rubber stamp? Nosey, I know, but it's something I've wanted to try.. Barb

Barb I use regular scrap booking type stamps and ink pads. There is are several types of ink pads and the ones I like best are the pigment ink. Stamp on a firm flat surface and a little pressure is needed. It's a fun way to ad texture to your fabric. Then just get crazy and paint it too! Have fun.
