Hand Stamped Fabric

These photos may look familiar to you if you follow me on Instagram.  I had posted them a little while back as I was printing them, but  here they are all together - a happy family. I had carved the stamps from rubber, and printed on cotton fabric with permanent, archival ink.  Still deciding what to sew with these. Each piece is about 8" square, so whatever I make, it needs to be on the smaller side. Suggestions?

Playing With Vector Art

I've been playing around with vector art! Lots of fun...after scanning drawings from my sketchbook, I use Image Trace in Illustrator. At that point I can individually select and colorize the lines, fills, and background. Also, easy to play with color schemes. In Kuler I create color palettes by pulling from photos or artwork. The palettes automatically load into Illustrator where I can pick and choose. The  colors in the floral were not as tacky looking when I was working on it, I swear! They were mellow and muted, so just try to picture it, please.
