So I packed up my brushes, textile mediums, and texture plates and went over to her house for a fun morning.
She had a couple of embroidery machines and uses them a lot for quilting. She made up a bunch of samples with neutral threads on neutral backgrounds and we got out the crayons and played.
The texture plates were the most fun. We put the fabric over the plates and rubbed the crayons on the fabric.
Then we brushed on the the textile medium -- we used my GAC 900 by Golden.
She made up a bunch of embroideries and her 13-year-old granddaughter had fun coloring.
I really like the colors she chose.
I think my favorite is this sailboat.
But the butterfly is pretty neat too.
