6 x 6 Fish Fabric Page



I recently joined a new yahoo group called 'Fabric in Altered Art' and quickly joined in on a monthly 6" x 6" fabric page swap that you could sign up for just one month at a time if you like. I created the fabric page shown here to the right for the May 'Fish' theme. The month of May had two themes you could work on - you'll see the second one I did below. For more info on joining this yahoo group go to: www.alteredfabrications.blogspot.com/ It's by invitation and you'll need to request to join.

This page was done with rubber stamps, mostly Fred Mullet gyotaku (fish print) stamps. I used my favorite inks for fabric; VersaCraft inks, and I sponged Dye-na-Flow paint on around the fish in blue & green. I sewed sequins & beads on. Then I glued on a few Bingo chips & small shells & I was almost done! I just had to add a little soft & natural batting and back the square with another piece of fabric. Voila! I will send this in to Cathy and she will swap me a different page back! If you click on the photo you will see a larger, more detailed one.
