|here is the table before we got started|
printed fabric to see what look we would get-by using that as our background.
The first piece of fabric we used was heavily printed w/text and graphics. We each painted "our" side of the fabric and then embellished. Once it was dry, Traci cut it in 1/2 for us to each use in our own projects.
The second piece of fabric we painted was a black polka dot on white. Traci opted to tone her side down with a thin layer of gesso before she started her painting. I decided to just go for it-hoping once painted it wouldn't hurt your eyes as bad.
We had a lot of fun painting and chatting-a successful "art day" for the two of us-reminded us of the days when a small group of us would get together and have "art days" to try out a new project/product or just work on something individually. and eat chocolate. and talk. girl talk.
