Stamping Monday

Well, I made it just under the wire! Electricity was out here a couple of times yesterday and today. Then I was out all day teaching so have just come home and made a trip to the fridge. I know we stamped vegetables a while back but it wasn't until I was an adult and my daughter came home from pre-school with some art work that I learned apples have stars in them! You just have to cut them in half around the middle....

I began by folding pleats into some paper and trying the stamp with two different colours. That worked well and I moved on to fabric which has a little more 'bounce' than paper, so you can see how the pleats are placed. Iron them down well and pin if necessary. The pleats are little irregular which makes them more interesting. I think you could do the same if you have a pleating board for dressmaking.

Once I stamped with one colour I reversed the pleats in the opposite direction and ironed them in place (let the paint dry first). Then I stamped with another colour and let it dry before ironing it all out flat.

I discovered that there was one more area that I could place on top of the pleats so I pleated and stamped for a third time. Then a final heat setting with the iron and I'm done.

This might be quite stunning with black fabric or I could put the pleats in the other direction and create a plaid effect! MMMM....better run the the fridge quick!
