Freezer Paper Resist...

Freezer Paper...Resist

I pulled out a roll of freezer paper and

sliced it up with my rotary cutter...

This was FUN and relaxing!

I went to the fabric cupboard

and pulled out some hand dyes...

I ironed the freezer paper strips to

the hand dyes...

It was enjoyable to create patterns...

These are now ready to be over-painted...

I am using Speedball and Versatex 

Screen Printing Inks

They leave the hand of the fabric soft.

I will roll the inks on with

foam rollers...

I mix purple and brown inks

to paint over this dusty lavender hand dye...

I mix purple and blue inks

to paint over this light blue hand dye...

I mix white, purple and blue inks

to paint over this light blue hand dye...

I mix white, purple and pink inks

to paint over this light blue hand dye...

After painting was done,

I put everything outside to dry in the sun...

I sat on the Cowboy's Roping Dummy

and peeled the freezer paper off

the painted fabrics...

Here comes the.....Show 'n Tell:

All that is left to do is

heat set the fabrics...

I am looking forward to using these

new surface design fabrics

in my abstract quilts.

  1. Well I see you too have a great talent for quilting. Love these resists. Always wanted to try doing that and ice dying and so much more but there are choices I have to make with the time allotted so I choose to let others do all of that and purchase it instead.

  2. Those turned out great - can't wait to see what you create with them.

  3. LOVE all of them LuAnn! You have the BEST projects. I am going to have to play more and see what I come up with. Thanks for sharing these beautiful fabrics that you created.

  4. Love, Love, Love! I use freezer paper stencils in my cutter, but never think of this simple way of making resists. Look like I'll be doing some of this soon. As always, thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Talk about patience! I can see how relaxing it would be to cut up the freezer paper! Now if I don't have any hand work, while watching football, I'll have to keep that in mind.
    Your pieces turned out quite nice. I really like the first one/ favorite...well, the blue is nice too and so is.....oh, alright! I like them all!!

  6. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing. :)

  7. Amazing fabrics!! I love watching you create these masterpieces...perhaps one day I'll be able to watch in person from start to finish - well, I'd rather have fun with you actually making the fabrics!
