Rainbow Printing for Free Download

I'm off to the CREATE mixed media retreat at Chicago/O'Hare and the good news is, I found the pdf for my rainbow printing handout that's been lost in inner space here on the Susie Monday macintosh! I'm sending it upstairs to the cloud for access, so if you've been wanting this handout (it's not  as complete and as multimedia as the info I'll be sharing in the course, of course, but it will get you started I think!)

In order to download the three page document (the last page is just a schedule of how the workshop is structured) please to go to my public document folder at me.com

I have been advised that some browsers don't like the me site, use Firefox or Safari if you can! Otherwise, email me through the contact form and I will send an email copy to you. (I have tried a new non-compressed document, so this may work for you!)

TV and Me

Not sure when or if this has actually started airing yet, but the Interweave folks are touting Season 6 of Quilting Arts TV. I do a demo of Rainbow Printing on one show (maybe the first?) I am hoping they send me a comp of the series! And if they don't I will order it. These shows have become one of my fallbacks for watching while I work in the studio -- lots of inspiration and interesting techniques.

Here's what they say at the publisher:


New Quilting Adventures Available Now!
 
“Quilting Arts TV” Series 600 could easily be the best season yet.

Join Pokey Bolton and her talented, clever guests in this sixth season of exciting adventures in quilting. You'll be amused, inspired, entertained, and informed by this season's master quilt artists. Enjoy the many fabulous quilting designs, techniques, and a wide variety of new projects in the 13 full episode DVD set.

Description

In addition to covering contemporary quilt design, free-motion quilting, machine embroidery, thread painting, and fused appliqué, this season we explore soy wax and flour paste resists, screen- and gelatin-printing techniques, unique finishing techniques for small quilts, and introduce a new, fun and informative segment: Save My UFO (UnFinished Objects).

Embellishment topics include designing with zippers, 3-D fabric flowers, and incorporating grommets in patchwork totes. Surface design techniques include stenciling, resist painting, gelatin printing, stamping with soy wax, screen printing fabrics using water-soluble crayons and polymer medium, designing fabrics with thickened dyes, and creative masking and stenciling techniques with oil paint sticks.

Projects include a Winslow Market Tote, 3-D floral appliqués that can be used as quilt embellishments or as brooches, soft-sculpture fabric birds, a colorful journal cover, a 3-D ornament, quilted boots, and fabric-collaged animal portraits.

Plus, Sharon Morton discusses the purpose of guilds and how they can help with quilting, and Pokey explores quilting from the eyes of a 7-year-old girl to get her unique perspective.

There is something for every art quilter and mixed-media artist, beginning through advanced levels.
