monoprinting on a sweatshirt

 I have been wanting to try mono printing for awhile and decided to add some feathers to a sweatshirt that way. I painted the shape of a feather on wax paper using regular cheap black acrylic paint mixed with a little bit of paint extender, then I quickly drew lines into the feather shape and stamped it onto the sweatshirt. I redid this two more times using the same spot on the wax paper so my feathers would be the same, and then added a few little ones down the sleeve. . I love it and have washed it a few times already with out it coming out. The layer of paint seems to be thin enough to not be stiff on my shirt either.
Simple project.
Happy project.




And I had a shop, Meeliki, add me into one of their treasuries. It is the prettiest treasury I have seen in a while so I had to share it. You can click any item to go to their shop on etsy.

decorating


Been spending my creative energy on decorating at work... trying to cover ugly gray cubicle panels with cheap stuff to look festive for thanksgiving... we bought plastic tablecloths for $1 and i made little swags of bittersweet, pine, dried oak leaves, a few silk fall leaves and the painted pods from this tree below, (again, i don't know the name of this tree)... turned out pretty good for cheap, you'd agree if you saw the walls before we started...









 Happy Thanksgiving!
