Textile Challenge Inspiration

We know you are all working hard on your projects for the Textile challenge!! I have received some fabulous stuff so far - keep them coming!! We will be awarding prizes to more than one entry - because there are so many great ways to feature these textiles that it will be too hard to choose just one winner!!

So - we decided to go through our samples to provide you with a little inspiration for your textile project.

On this page Sharyn Tormanen used the Textile Circles both on their own directly onto the page and also mounted on the Circle Technique Tiles.

She used ink to change the color the textiles by just wiping them across the textile while it is still attached to the backing sheet. She used images from the Hanging by a Thread stamp set and the "B" from Savannah Capital Letters Extra Large to decorate the textile embellishments.

On this tag - Eileen stamped the Savannah Large letters individually in orange to create the Script look onto a Square Textile. While keeping the textile on its plastic backing sheet, she cut around the words, then peeled them off the backing sheet to adhere to the tag.

I LOVE the technique Heather Binnie used on this page! For the title Heather stamped with the Brooklyn Bridge large alphabet onto the Textile Squares and adhered them to their corresponding size of Square Technique Tiles.

For the little embellished squares - she stamped the bubble image from the Metro Squares stamp set onto the textile and then adhered it onto the square technique tile.

And finally (the coolest part!!) First she sized her picture in her photo editing program to match the size of the largest square textile. Next, she sent a piece of paper through her printer to test the placement, then she adhered a Square Textile to the piece of paper over the top of the printed photo and printed the photo again through her printer to print the photograph directly onto the textile!! Great job Heather!!
