Painted Fusible and Latte, Anyone?

This past weekend, I took a few moments to experiment with painting fusible, adhering it to fabric, then over stamping with some permanent ink. You all know I love to experiment, AND, I wanted some interesting fabric to bring along to use in one of my projects.

Here is the finished results, the outcome. By using copper metallic paint and black ink onto black fabric, I was able to obtain an “old world” distressed look. Be sure to click on the thumbnail for a larger look:


Next up- Before I packed my bags, I decided to take one more glance at my AFF trade in the finished condition. The final presentation will be as if I were handing out lattes like this:

Finally, a shout out to Kay’s blog for her posting of a yummy homemade chicken noodle soup. I made it last night, thoughI did substitute a few ingredients. The family loved it- and, best of all, we have extra for lunch today! Easy, tasty, just the way a recipe should be. Thanks, Kay!

Hugs, Carla

  1. Gaw-juss painted fusible fabric, Carla! I’m so jealous of all my friends who are experimenting and playing this week, when all I’m doing is cleaning house. After Quilt Festival, I SWEAR, I’m going to play too! (Want to come play at my house?)

  2. LOL, Linda, took me a minute to figure out the texas slang there!! LOL Yes, I would be there this year, but the timing was off a bit! Next year for sure!!! Hugs, Carla

    PS to Sharon, Thank you for you nice comment Sharon!

  3. Ooooo very cool fabric. In case you all don’t know, the hole in the ozone over CA is mainly due to Carla’s experiments! She is lovingly referred to as “Blowtorch”, and even had an avatar featuring one of her favorite “art tools”. Only Carla would have a blowtorch in her art studio….Well, she is very creative and experimental, and the results are always beautiful!

  4. Both are very cool, and that created fabric is to die for. Can’t wait to see what you do with it!! Hope you are having a wonderful time at your get-away.
