    This is really cool. I never knew how that was done and wasn’t really interested in it until now. Thanks for sharing your technique! I’m going to give that a try today!

    Thank you so much for sharing this. You have inspired me to take on my art work after a gap of some 25 years. I intend to keep going.

      Thanks Padma, I think it’s so important to be creative even if it’s just for a short while every day or week. Making it a regular practice will change you in so many good ways. Good luck!

    Just in time for my final piece for my Bachelor in visual arts degree. I had never heard of this technique before.

    Many thanks for putting this information up for us to see.

    I tried this! I love it for a painting surface. I did 3 paintings in a week! It was inspiring to have a “new” surface to work with. Thanks for sharing!

    These are beautiful, I can think of many ideas for using these..and many other fun things to incorporate also. I’m curious as to how they hold up to washing?

      Ricki, This is not something that would wash so if you tried to wash it it would fall apart.

    Hi Linda. I just love your work so much. Thank you for sharing with all of us all the time. You definately inspire me. I love the fabric paper idea, it looks awesome. On the green one, there is a lot of extra texture. Is that from the paper? I love the look. Thank you so much

    Thanks for sharing this technique. Can it be ironed?

      Yes, but you’ll want to protect your iron by using a pressing cloth or something similar.
