Quilt Journal Page #5


I used Shiva painstiks and a stencil to transfer my figure drawing to hand-dyed pole wrapped shibori patterned fabric for quilt journal page #5.  I bought this sample metallic set of painstiks 4 years ago and never tried them before now. 

The 3 figures were "painted" using a small stencil brush.  The binding was made by rubbing the painstik directly over orange construction site mesh that is currently being used on scaffolds at our apartment building.  The free form quilting was done with black thread - as before.  

The quiltlet is actually 8.5 X 11 inches - it is my photo that makes it look out of shape.  I hope to use silk screen or thermofax screen printing for QJP#6.


I love your fabric journal pages!!!

5 days to dry?!! Wow =) I wonder how do you know when it's really dried. Do you poke it every morning and evening?

Great job! These women are wonderful !

Love what you have done. I was more afraid of the paintstiks. Wait until you see mine. So different.

This is so beautiful! I love the poses, the composition, and the colors you chose. nancy

This one is my favorite

This is fabulous! I love the repetition of the figure!
