The other day when I made my Glue It Tuesday collage, I poured out a little orange paint into a dish to use for a doily stencil on my piece.
I love the way the doilies look when stenciled onto paper and fabric and had WAY too much paint left over in the dish...at least a tablespoon full and could NOT let it go down the drain.
So, I picked up the first piece of fabric that was nearby and stenciled more.
I then went to my 'surface design bin' and did the same to everything I touched that could use a little extra pizazz.
I always work off the top of my pile and these fabrics just happened to be 'next'.
I used up all the paint and then began to spray water on the brush in the container...which went a Looooong way toward stenciling still more fabric.
I always do this because the thought of paint wasted...and worse...in our earth's water supply...just doesn't appeal to me.
Once I had every bit used up...I dipped the brush in water and turned the last pieces orange by soaking them in it.
At the end...there was just the barest hint of orange in the fabric.
When I finally took soap to the brush, it was almost clear. Makes me feel good to do this...even if many of you think I'm a bit of a whacko.
Oh, and it always amazes me when I have new followers and commenters and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! To the new ones and old ones. Yeah...I love all you oldies.
