Toolin' Tuesday - Gotta Find You Some!

The quilt above - Raven Creates -
was made from fabrics - cotton, velveteen and silk that were played into textured being.
It's all about play today!
Creating texture is fun -
layering them up can create grand, wonderful things.
But, all come about from your willingness to get your hands dirty,
letting  your mind wander and JUST PLAY!

The tools I am sharing with you are those that I have found or made.
Each has its own charm
Can be used with paints or inks
For creating TEXTURE on paper or fabric

There are loads of of different ways you can use these,
and I will definitely share some of these later on this month, so for now
start finding some play tools!!
found objects from the creative reuse and recycle center
purchased rubbing boards work well

but these found gridded and textured objects offer lot of play opps
I'm off now, but I'll be looking for some new play-tools...
How 'bout you?
I'd love to hear what you find!

Hunting On


  1. Hi, Rose, Just happened upon your very creative blog. I've pretty much resisted stamping and printing on fabric, but you make it so tempting! Great ideas in your blog--I enjoyed the visit.
    best from Tunisia,

  2. Hi Nadia - thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment - I am just back from where wifi is just not there, and I am excited about all the textures I have found and ready to share.

    Hope you find more to tempt you! ~Rose
