Inspired By — Painting Fabrics

Painting fabrics for various projects in my head including my pouf or pouf’s.  Not only is it fun getting stuck in, painting with my hands, making graffiti marks, but it’s a great stress reliever. After running back and forth to the farmhouse rehab, or working on detail in the office, messing about with the paints on fabric and letting my mind wander is a wonderful thing.  Here are the four that are done so far and some process  of them as well.  Might have enough to start sewing next week…


Also found some lips on my painting board, which became the impetus for this face.  I like how she looks at me before I cover her up with canvas.  As if she is saying, okay, so what are you going to do today? My painting board is a big 4×6 sheet of floor underlayment(homesote) which the Superhero mounted to the wall,  It has a frame of 1×3″ wood that keeps it stiff and a strip on top to mount a light.  Works great for those who like to painting standing up…


So today…get messy, be bold, paint away.  I know I will.

    Having the right way to paint makes a difference, so one for the super-hero!

    Loving seeing your painted fabrics but I would have thought canvas was very stiff to sew? Maybe I’m thinking of too heavy a canvas?
    Yes, your fabulous big lady is saying something like “Get on with it”, at least that’s what she’s saying to me and she is quite right.
    Aren’t superheros a wonderful invention.

    That painted fabric really turned me on! I love it. I wish I had heavy fabric like that. Canvas, maybe? It’s really awesome, and all stacked up like that made me realize why I don’t buy fabric at the fabric store. Yours is over the top gorgeous!!!!!!
