FIVE WEEK CHALLENGE - DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE WITH BEA
CLUE NUMBER ONE:
Create a 9" x 7 " piece of altered fabric. You can stamp, paint, dye, color with water crayons, applique, etc. what ever you want to one side of this cut piece.
Suggestions: I cut two pieces of muslin 9x7 and then coated one side with white gesso and let them dry.
I also experimented with a medium weight interfacing, not as stiff as Peltex, more on the order of Ludator. Since I haven't a clue where to find that stuff I find the interfacing is just as easy to paint on and use the heat gun, if I want.
I found a small UFO wallhanging in a crazy quilt type style. I cut that up.
If you have fabric paper that you have made it will work fine. And, if you don't this is the time to give it a try.
Don't fuss with this step. Don't PLACE things in a certain place and expect them to stay there by the end of the challenge. Have fun.
This cut piece will go through some transformations. This is NOT the last time you can apply something to this piece.
Remember to take a picture of your finished "Clue piece" and post it on your blog on Friday. Let me know that you are playing and the link to your blog so I can post them here. Then all the participants can take a gander at what you have created so far.
