fabric samples

Yesterday was one of those days in which much should have been done and wasnt. Phone calls, people coming, a foal with a spot in its eye and so the vet out, all conspired against me. Luckily the foal isnt too bad and only needs ointment but she and her mother will have to stay n the stables for a few days.
While I was waiting for the vet I had cut out another printing block from a foam meat try, actually I think this was a vegetable tray, and printed it out on some tea dyed calico using raw sienna acrylic paint mixed with textile medium. I am finding this an interesting exercise and have a few more "designs" to do. I like the idea of using the fairly rough look for doll bodies and then more embellishment over the top. So this is a scan of what I did yesterday.
Tomorrow I go up to Adelaide for a 2 day cloth doll class with Barbara Willis, so no blog for a while.
today has been spent getting all my class stuff together, as well as clothes etc and leaving things here a bit neat and tidy as Barb will come back with me on Sunday night. I think I may have said this before. how boring of me!
