I got a cortisone shot in my shoulder so I’m feeling better in that arena of life; nothing like joint mobility. I’m still fussing at getting my laptop set up; that takes so much time.
I laminated some photocopies of the US Capitol building onto some hand dyed cotton sateen today. First I figured out where on the fabric I wanted the photo to be centered; then, I turned the paper over, taped it in place, and then brushed acrylic gel medium on top of the fabric to transfer the pigment to the cotton:
Here are several sizes of US Capitol building photocopies waiting for their fabric assignments:
Here’s one finished piece, which is about 8 inches wide:
This one is much smaller:
Eventually, these small pieces of fabric will be used for small cloud-shapes in my quilt project. I’m planning on 19 small clouds.

That looks amazing, you take working with fabric to a very artistic and dynamic level I didn’t even know existed 🙂 Keep up the good work with poignant cloth art.
Thanks a lot. Am off from work for a week so should FINALLY get back to you in the next few days. Am going to St. David tomorrow w/my mom. I’ll clue you in soon.
