Bold Color Invades the Fabric

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Today I got out my bold color textile paints and some stencils and had a stash making session.  Pink, orange, red yellow turquoise and green and big hits of black.  Light canvas, osnaburg(cotton) and heavier weight canvas. I really enjoy the textile paints from Jacquard, they are so easy to use. As are the Dynaflo liquid squeeze bottles too. A bit of a dry on the line in the sun, and a heat set in the dryer and these are good to go. Colorful and fun, not to fiber collage and make some new pillows…..and maybe a bag or two.

Thought you would enjoy a couple of shots of Autumn around her in Maine.

This was just about at sunset and I was dropping off art at our local association and these trees with sun coming through caught my eye.  Could not resist.  I feel so lucky to live in such a gorgeous part of the planet.  Happy day.


  1. Bold indeed…but beautiful.

    Scrumptious stash you’ve got here Corrine!

  3. I am JEALOUS! What a gorgeous day it was and you got to play with fabric and paint. While I battled kids with hardly any voice…ha-ha-anyhow, they are gorgeous pieces. And I am glad you made the most of this day! I wish November would stay like this!

  4. Love your colourful fabric prints, I wonder what you will use them for? Lovely photos, too, hugs, Valerie

  5. Wow, those are gorgeous colors, and I’m really impressed the fabric took the paint so well. I love these, and am sure they will turn into something absolutely gorgeous.

    Really enjoyed your tree shots, too. The beauty of the sunset is unmistakable.

  6. Lovely, the fabric and the trees. Enjoy your fine weather while you can. How are the dogs doing? Have you all adjusted nicely to your new digs?

  7. Such gorgeous colours, I love the pink/red one Corrine, and there will be some wonderful pillows sewed from your great patterned fabrics.
    Lovely for you, with the sun still shining on you , here we have fog and grey weather 🙁
    and gorgeous photoes from your Maine residense dear.

  8. Both beautiful fabric art and photography, Corrine! I am drawn to the blue/green fabric–perhaps because I am by the sea and continually see those constant yet changing colors in the water! Tell us about “dropping off art at the local association.” Inquiring minds want to know!

  9. Amazing fabrics Corinne ..wonderful !!!!
    And it looks like we have the same nice weather this time here … gorgeous!
    Happy rest of the week dear Corinne!
    Love and hugs

  10. Every time I see you painting on to fabrics I think I must try it. Looking forward to seeing how you use these lovely colourful patterns.

  11. I have heard how beautiful Maine is. I’m hoping to see a small part of it next fall. Do the natural surroundings of Maine influence your art or the colors in your art?

  12. Your painted fabrics looks wonderful and a perfect ingredient for your fabric creations.
    Fall is such a lovely times of year isn’t it.
    Happy Weekend to you and yours oxo

  13. That sounds like a wonderful day, and I love the fabrics you painted! Can see all kinds of beautful things being created from these….

  14. What wonderfully colorful, lush fabrics. I can’t wait to see what you create with them!

  15. your coloring of the fabrics Looks wonderful. seems i must go and look out for fabric paints (not too fluid, i also want to stamp with them). so far i used acrylics, but they are too stiff actually, i don´t love their haptics. oh, and nice shots… this autumn is a feast so far!
