|Here is my canvas drop cloth on a table with a little felt underneath to give it cush, also covered in the DVD.|
|This is printed directly on the canvas, and it might be my favorite.|
|Throwing caution to the wind here with doing many prints with more paint. Gloppy in some parts, but I could use it for something later.|
I watch Quilting Arts and have seen the demo and would love to try to do it. The fabric comes out so awesome. Thank you for a chance to win.ReplyDelete
