Thermofax screen printed images using Xpandaprint
I know today is usually Where I Stand Sunday but my feet aren't standing anywhere at the moment. (A nasty cold has taken me down for the count and made me cancel my plans for the day. Zicam and I are best friends right now...)
So in lieu of the fact that I have no Where I Stand photo, I thought I'd do a giveaway instead. :)
I've been purging and cleaning my studio and spare room because its time to let the items go that I no longer need and will never use. And while this particular item does not fall under that category, I would like for it to go to a home where it is appreciated rather then sitting on a shelf unloved.
This is fabric that I made when I wrote my first article for Quilting Arts on Thermofax Screen Printing. The white/pink swirls are printed with paint but the daisies (printed with this screen), were printed with Xpandaprint. If you've never tried Xpandaprint before, its pretty nifty stuff. Its a high quality puff paint product and I tell ya, I get such a thrill from taking the heat gun to it and watching it expand into cool texture. :)
After I puffed it, I painted it (the Xpandaprint comes in white and black) to give the flowers some pop.
Want a closer look?
Get a good look at the texture of the Xpandaprint:
I will say that the photos do not really show how electric the base fabric is, its a really intense magenta. And while I'm still struggling to make friends with pink, I can totally appreciate a good saturated color and fell in love with the vibrancy of it.
So would you like to have it? If you would, here's what you need to do:
