Playing with Print


I've been continuing on with my drawings in dribs and drabs since I've been home, and I finally scanned the ones that I'd completed.



I've added some borders and some watermarks, and printed them onto inkjet printable fabric. I love how the fabric gives the drawing even more texture.

Whilst finally organising my taxes yesterday, I also managed to print my Medicare Tax Statement onto inkjet printable paper..... hmmmm wonder what I can sew with that!


I have a little project in the works for these..... I'll show and tell once I'm finished.

wow cam, they look fabulous on the fabric. I adore the tulips...the texture just brings them out even more.
I can not wait to see what you have planned to do with them...and how funny that you printed your medicare on the good sheet...not funny at the time I'm sure. How'd the taxes end up. Hope your getting a nice big return (:

They look just gorgeous on the fabric! Great idea. Please come up with a project for that medicare statement, you will crack me up forever!

Caroline said...

Hehe, I love reading your blog because you always tell the funny stuff. I'll be giggling about your fabric Medicare tax statement for the rest of the day. You can frame it with Nurse Nelly from the Old Maid card set perhaps... (love your drawings too, of course)

Your prints look amazing, such a great idea!..oh the possibilities for the medicare statement, I love it!
...as for my cabinet, I'm a bit stumped, I was thinking a new coat of paint, maybe a vintage paper top & new handles...
