I have found that I am always adding words to my work. I purchased two stencils from Stencil Girls that have motivational words and began to test how to use this stencil with fabrics. My first experiments using fabric scraps and a quilted block and white fabric paint.
I first took a scrap of colorful fabric to see if the words would show up. I backed the fabric with freezer paper, taped the stencil to the fabric with painters tape, and began using a makeup sponge to apply the white paint to the fabric.
I next took the quilted block and followed the same procedure.
Next using other fabric paints and a make up sponge I applied paint to additional scraps of fabric.
I then decided to try artist acrylic inks. I had these misters so I filled them with ink. I laid the stencil on top of the scraps of fabric and then misted the fabric.
I ended up making a gift for my daughter a quilted wall hanging form one of my scraps.
