I had this super great idea to purchase an art tote bag from Dick Blick and add my own pattern to the bag with Crayola Fabric Crayons. So I drew my design on a piece of paper and tried to transfer it with an iron…
This is where the problem began – the mesh bag melted from the iron. As you can see in the close-up photo below. (Note to self – next time read the fabric content!)
Luckily, I was able to catch it before it melted all the way through to the other side. So now I’m onto Plan B! I have some ideas with fabric that don’t involve heat. And it may end up turning out way better than my first experiment. I will post it in a couple of days so you can see my results. 🙂
I have also been making tree collages with old magazines. It is really fun to think outside the bag, I mean box and play with color, patterns and shapes.
I realize these are not your typical Oak or Maple tree growing outside your window but that is the point! Creating with the imagination can be quite fun and liberating!
And then sometimes, things turn out a bit strange…
So you just have to laugh! I’m enjoying the journey, how about you?!
Happy Experimenting! 🙂
