Default MIX30 - Use Fabric (8/23/2013)

Challenge Title : Use Fabric
Hostess : Biggan (Birgit)
Keyword : MIX30

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Ready for a new Mix-Ability challenge?!! We hope you're having fun with these! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it !

I'm the kind of person that has trouble throwing away things..so I have lots of fabric scraps! I once had the ambition to weave rag rugs….

So this week the challenge is to use pieces of fabric on your project. Create a background or use the fabric in any way you want! Combine it with at least one more medium: acrylic, Gesso, Ink, etc.

There are many ways you can do this! Here are some ideas:
1) Make flowers with your fabric
2) Create a landscape
3) Just put the pieces together and create art! ☺

Here you can find my BLUE card and here´s the YELLOW card.

If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal, instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX30) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can see it!

I'm moving my daughter into her dorm room at college today so I didn't have time to look through my stash of fabric, I decided to use my burlap and lace fabric on my card today. I'll have to come back at a later date with other fabric. Here is my card:

I did this one recently so it is a bit of a cheat to post it today. I will make another one and post it but I am not sure when. I am making my way through every Mix challenge.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share this girl.

Blessings,

Lela

I liked your idea of framing the fabric Birgit - so that's what I did on my mixed media Birthday Card! MIX30 Make A Wish IC403 by artystamper - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I had just given away most of my cloth scraps - but found some in a bag along with a pattern for a long forgotten project!
