Eileen made the canvas aprons for us (thank you SO much, Eileen), and we went to town. This was my finished apron, and I had a LOT of fun getting there!
We started by testing stamps and different types of paint on scrap fabrics that Eileen provided. We all brought stamps from our own stashes, with the hands down favourite being the Art Foamies. These fabulous stamps are not only beautifully designed, they're crisp, easy to handle and even easier to clean. We LOVED them!
Eileen's test fabric was a study in blues and greens; you can see the finished sampler here on Eileen's post about the art party.
Eileen's finished apron is so elegant in black and white...I think I want to do another one after seeing this.
Laura was a very busy woman as she finished a sampler, some wrapping paper (bottom right, done by first stamping on paper to get a softer effect with the paint on her sampler/apron) and her apron.
Gail, a clothing designer, worked on a piece of fabric in soft shades of brown. The all-over pattern will make a lovely garment.
It was a wonderful day of creative fun and I can see that we will want to organize more of these parties.
I wonder what will be next...tote bags, sneakers, or ???
