Painting on Fabric

Someone asked me the other day if I stock fabric paint, and I don't as they are quite expensive and it is really hard to stock EVERYTHING.

But what we do stock is a highly underused product called Fabric Medium from Ranger.

Here is the information from Ranger:

The Ranger Clear Fabric Medium is a dimensional acrylic medium that creates custom fabric paints. Just add color to the clear formula by mixing with Ranger Archival Inks, Adirondack Pigment Inks, Adirondack Alcohol Inks or Perfect Pearls Pigment Powders. Use with glitters and embossing powders for added sparkly effects, too.
Create wearable art by using the custom paints to stencil, stamp or paint with a brush onto t-shirts, aprons, handbags, scarves and more.
• Create fabric paints
• Clear acrylic formula• Add color with Ranger products• Acid free and non-toxic

As well as mixing it with the Ranger products listed above you can also mix it with any acrylic paint to create Fabric Paint.
And what do you do with Fabric Paint? Have a look at these images / ideas from Pinterest:

Also great for making custom decorated pillows! You are limited only by your imagination. For more ideas got to Pinterest and search fabric paint. Or click {here}
Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!

Are you on Pinterest? I often get lost on there. Wether I am looking for ideas for our new house, storage ideas or craftiness.

This week I have been looking for some ideas for our new house. I will actually have a room for all my crafty items! As the room is smallish I have looked for ways that can store a lot with out looking cluttered.

What do you think of a desk like this? So easy to make with 2 book cases and a table top! Even I could make this!!

{The blogs these images are originally from are linked on the picture.}

And my favourite idea from this week is a way to keep track of your punches.

Make small white cards and punch out the shape. You can laminate this card, then keep it on a ring with your other ones. Then when you need a punch (or die!) - instead of getting them all out and hunting through just place your cut out over it and you can see instantly if it will fit! You can then reach for your desired punch or die cut.

The power is starting the flicker a little in this wild weather we are having so I had better turn off the computer!

Wishing everyone an awesome week ahead!!

Another week flown by...


This week has really flown by again! We had canvas classes, scrapbooking classes as well as card making and a kids class. My little boy turned 6 on Friday, there was a sports carnival at school, today the kids went to a party this morning, I worked, then in the afternoon Elisa and I met up with some Arty Farty People (click here to join that FB group :) - you won't regret it!!) and now I should be getting ready for my little man's birthday party we are holding at the park in Strathalbyn tomorrow (after soccer in the morning!).

What have you been up to this week?

The kids where face painted at the party this morning. Unfortunately it looks like little Alex will be staying slightly green as even with scrubbing I couldn't remove the rest!! Doesn't help that his skin is allergic to lots of things I could have possibly used to help remove it (like baby oil!)
