No 107 – Fabric painting – New book – Stamping on fabric

You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy printing on fabric! 🙂

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

In March 2017, I published the first book in my series of fabric-painting guide books, ‘Your fast & easy guide Number 1: The Basics’.

Fabric-painting book – The Basics

The book contains all the information a fabric-painting beginner needs in order to get started. The discussion is about the basics of fabric painting and includes a practical introduction to different techniques.

Beginning of August 2017, I launched the second book in the series, ‘Your fast & easy guide Number 2: Fabric Colouring In‘.

Fabric-painting book – Fabric Colouring In

This book offers you even more opportunities to play around with the different fabric painting techniques. Creating unique designs for ‘Fabric colouring In’ projects is a lot of fun!

And now – TODAY – it’s launch day again!

My newest book, the third in the series, has just been released! Your fast & easy guide Number 3’ is all about STAMPING!

Fabric-painting book – Stamping

Stamping on fabric is a great and easy-to-learn way to create attractive embellishments and pep up your clothes by adding colourful and unique designs to them.

The purpose of the new book is to be your companion and guide while you’re on your stamping journey, so you don’t get lost along the way.

It’s a very practical guide to fabric stamping, the ‘knowledge’ section has been kept as short as possible. You can focus on DOING and HAVING FUN.

In the 21 project descriptions, step-by-step instructions and many images help you not only understand stamp making and printing processes but experience and enjoy them.

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

Come and join me at the ‘StencilGirl Talk’

If you love stencilling, you’ll – sooner or later – meet the ‘StencilGirl’.

That’s what happened to me some months ago when I surfed the Google-universe in search for new stencilling ideas and tools.

Mary Beth Shaw founded the US company StencilGirl Products some years ago.

Having hand-cut her own stencils for years, Mary Beth entered  the stencil design business in 2010 after her students asked if they could purchase some of her designs.

Today StencilGirl Products sells more than 900 stencils designed by a team of talented artists.

The company not only sells a huge variety of artistic stencils, it also runs the well-known blog ‘StencilGirl Talks where stencil-enthusiasts from all around the world share their experiences and project ideas.

I was very excited when I got the opportunity to join the talk by contributing a guest post!

It’s been published today!

And bring some time along – to get to know ‘the StencilGirl’, and to study all the other blog posts and the many stencilling tutorials!

I’m looking forward to meeting you at the ‘StencilGirl Talk‘,

Margot

Are you looking for new and effective ways to reduce stress and to relax? – FABRIC COLOURING IN could be YOUR SOLUTION! 🙂  

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

In March 2017, I published the first book in my series of fabric-painting guide books, Your fast & easy guide Number 1: The Basics.

I still remember very well how excited I was on the launch day!

Today, I’m very excited again!

My new book, the second in the series of guide books, has just been released! 

It’s called ‘Your fast & easy guide Number 2: Fabric Colouring In’.

Cover book 2 – Fabric Colouring in – Fabric-painting book series

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s the book about? And what is Fabric Colouring In?

Adult colouring books are very popular because many stressed-out people value colouring in as an easy way to relax.

Fabric painting is also a very relaxing activity but – compared to colouring books – it’s more creative and more productive.

Fabric colouring in – the ‘new’ fabric-painting discipline – combines the benefits of coloring-in books and fabric painting.

It helps you relax and have fun while playing around and creating colourful designs on fabric – without having to have any detailed knowledge or special skills.

While working on the book’s several easy-to-do example projects, you’ll learn how to apply various fabric-painting techniques, simply by experimenting with and exploring the many possibilities of design creation and colouring in on fabric.
