For those unfamiliar with Re-Store, it is a wonderful, quirky, odd, incredibly interesting place full of stuff donated by local contractors when they have excess materials. Or from the home improvement who is updating their house and replacing cabinets, bathroom fixtures, kitchen stuff. There are so many little screws, and fittings and washers and tiles and pierces of wood. It is like heaven for me!!!!! Next best thing to a fabric store!
And I am about to make some of my own. Here is some cement backer board with a vinyl covering that will make an excellent base on which the other stuff will be glued. I bought some circles, some wonderfully ridge-y strips, some squares with holes.
I plan on gluing these pieces to that cement backer board and using it as a printing plate. I also scored a set of 100% cotton pillow cases in a light blue that can be the fabric that gets printed!
I also found a smaller piece of PVC pipe for my shibori dyes, which I think will be the first technnique I subject my blue pillowcases to. Just prior to the circles stamping.
I have procion dyes, which I will post later this week with some cheesecloth I just dyed. I need to figure out how to thicken the dye so I can paint it on to the circle plate. And I need to get a brayer. Maybe a trip to Hobby Lobby is in store!
I am going to post this to Nina Marie's Creations page for her Off the Wall Friday post. Check out what others have going on as well.
