The last couple of weeks has found me creating this wonderful New "Fabric Paper"
Oh the textures you can create with the combination of muslin and tissue paper.
My latest Fabric Paper creation is below:

Painted Fabric Paper
I was going for a landscape theme here...
This is what the Fabric Paper looked like BEFORE I painted it.
I used textile paints to keep the finished project soft so I can quilt it.
See my previous posts HERE for a tutorial
These were the inspiration for this landscape quilt.
As soon as I saw them at the thrift store I knew I could use them for something quilting related.
Lots of wall paper horses came in the package.
I wet the adhesive on the back of the horses and placed them directly on top of the painted Fabric Paper.
The wallpaper horses acted as a resist when I stamped the black paint over the top of them.
Here they are with the wallpaper horses removed.
The resist technique created a silhouette of the horses.
I had no idea how this would turn out.....everything is an experiment around here.
p.s. I removed the wallpaper horses as soon as I was done stamping the black paint on. They removed easily.
I was in the mood to continue stamping, so I took out my collection of ABC stamps and had some more fun!
Fabric Paper Horses
Ready to layer with batting and backing fabric.
I plan to throw some stitches into this and see how it looks...
