Elements 2 Fabrics

Elements Background Fabric Sample
This is one of the fabric background samples I have created for Elements 2, the final pieces will look very different its a bit like making background papers. Once they are layered, panelled worked on some more...........yummm!

More Fabric Samples
Now you can see one of the reasons my blog has been slow! These are just some of the background fabrics I have been working on to help with colour, stamp and stencil choice. We are using Stampendous jumbo rubber stamps they were an answer to my prayers, beautiful big designs! Stuart Gill new stencils and paints. More stamps etc.

Earth Spirit
Just a tryout using but she looks good I think. Stamp designed by Carrie-Ann Dennison; Carrie is a rubber carver and Glenda Waterworth (old Elusive Images.....new Chocolate Baroque) made up some of her designs in moulded rubber. I really love this one. This is stamped onto cotton fabric and burnt out with a pyrography tool............ok to do if you don't mind the smell and smoke!

Bye for now, take care:-)


  1. Wow, Paddy these samples are so vibrant and full of such beautiful colours. Earth Spirit looks great too, haven't done any pyrography since i was a lot younger and then it was onto a wooden spoon which i still have somewhere.

    Elements looks like it going to be an exciting weekend workshop, learning new techniques and using fabrics, yum indeed:-)

  2. Yippee can't wait !!!!!! Bit excited if you can't tell LOL can't wait either!! Elizabeth the quiet one xxx
