Hi this is Marsha Valk from Nathalie Kalbach’s Creative Squad!
Colours really are my friends. I love them all dearly, and I could never, ever pick just one favourite!
But as much as I love the entire rainbow, it doesn’t mean all my friends have to come out to play every single time. It’s OK to pick just one for a heart to heart now and then.
I invited a couple of my fabric paint colours for a playdate. I couldn’t find a light, neutral coloured apron to print on, so I got a black one instead. During a short test run on paper, Yellow saw that the black background would shine through and cancelled on me.
I mixed Teal with a bit of White fabric paint and applied it to a StampBuddy. It acts as a stamp pad: gently dab the foam stamp into the foam of the StampBuddy to get an even distribution of paint on the stamp.
Then I started stamping a pattern with the Broadway ArtFoamies stamp onto my pre-washed black 100% cotton apron. I liked what I saw!
Pink was waiting to have a go too, but once we saw the denim-like look of the Teal/White prints, we agreed not to interfere.
I covered the pocket with deli paper to prevent the paint from seeping through while I stamped around it. The plan was to make it look like the pattern continued behind the pocket. It didn’t prevent me from making the stamped design go a bit askew here.
Most fabric paints have to be fixated to make it (machine)washable. The paint I used had to dry for 30 minutes before I could fixate it by ironing the fabric with an iron on medium heat.
Thank you for stopping by! – Marsha Valk
