Dyeing Results and More Screen Printing

I worked today on samples for my mixed media/felt online course that I’m working up. It was lots of fun and I’m looking forward to sharing the processes. I also completed my 2nd quarter challenge for the Felting and Fiber Studio which I’ll post there soon. I thought you’d like to see a few of the dyed pieces from last week’s dyeing session.

I like how most of them turned out and I’m not sure what they’ll be used for yet but I’m sure they’ll get more layering, especially the two scarves which are pretty boring.

Because I had a bunch of thickened dye left over from my 2nd quarter challenge piece, I decided to do some screen printing and stenciling on paper. Most of the stencils were ones I had cut a long time ago. There were several that I had never even used. The little blue flowers are a commercial stencil that I won from a blog give away. I had fun playing with these today.


Last, but not least, I got my sewing machine back. So I added some stitching to the fossil paper lamination piece. I really like how it turned out. I will be making many more samples of paper lamination nuno felt as I work up the online class. Fun, fun, fun!

  1. It all looks like a lot of fun! I can’t wait to see your challenge piece and what you do with all these lovely scarves and print. I’m glad you got your machine back. The stitching looks great on the last piece.

  2. I hope you’re enjoying making the samples, Ruth, the results are great! I like the stitching you added to your laminate piece too 🙂

  3. you are such a tease… ;o) so your challenge piece includes some screen printing? Can’t wait to see your interpretation of Stewart Stephenson. Really like the effects you are getting with the stencils too, I can see some of them working really well on rainbow dyed backgrounds.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
