No 78 – Happy New Year wishes from Your Colourful Mind, the fabric painting hot spot

Wishing you a joyous and colourful new year!

Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,

this is the last and shortest post of the year 2016.

I’ll just show you how I created my ‘Happy New Year’ T-shirt:

‘Happy New Year’ fabric painting project

Recently, I had carved all the letters of the alphabet from rubber blocks.

The prints of the letters are not very strong-coloured, thus I decided to give them round backgrounds.

These are the stamps I used in this project:

fabric painting - self-craved stamps for Happy New Year printing
fabric painting – self-craved stamps for Happy New Year printing

First, I stamped the background circles:

fabric stamping - halves of round stamps as background prints
fabric stamping – halves of round stamps as background prints

And then I used the letters to print the new year wishes:

fabric stamping - printing with self-carved letters on t-shirt
fabric stamping – printing with self-carved letters on t-shirt

This was the result:

fabric stamping on t-shirt - New year wishes
fabric stamping on t-shirt – New year wishes

To be honest, I was not very proud and happy about the results:

  • I worked too quickly and didn’t prepare the printing properly: I didn’t make sure that the prints were arranged in the middle of the T-shirt.
  • The T-shirt also looked a bit pale. I wanted to wear it at new year’s eve, but for that occasion it definitely wasn’t colourful enough.

So, I thought about how I could improve the results.

As I couldn’t do anything about the first point, I concentrated on the second.

The plan was, to use fabric colour sprays to add some additional colour.

So I had to prepare the T-Shirt for the spraying process:

fabric painting - preparing the t-shirt for the fabric spraying process

This is the final result:

It’s still not a master piece but at least it’s more colourful now. 🙂

May the New Year bring you more success in your fabric painting projects, 
but also, and that’s much more important,

Health, Piece and Happiness!

 

Wish you all the best,

Margot
