We each received a blank white silk scarf which we ironed to freezer paper to keep it from wrinkling. We picked colors and painted on a paper towel first, then a silk swatch, and finally we were ready to create. I started by putting some black and silver lines using a resist type paint, then went to town with the fabric paints. To get some watery special effects, I used two sizes of salt. We dried our scarves, ironed them to set the paint, washed them in a fixative, and ironed once more. And
TA DA! Here is my gorgeous scarf!
The most fun part was painting the fringe. Isn't it fun? Now I want to make more, more, more! Maybe I CAN do art! I'm wearing it out today for lunch. Can't wait.
We had company for the weekend and they left us this beautiful bouquet and a bottle of wine as a thank you gift.
You probably didn't know I have my own vineyard and wine label, did you?
Well I do have a vineyard that consists of two grapevines, but no, this I haven't tried winemaking yet. I do think it is pretty cool to have a wine named for me! LOL!
