Welcome to Day #2 of the Fabric Printing at Home Blog Tour!
Today I'd like to introduce quilt and surface design artist, Lisa Chin.
As a young child, I continually begged my Mother to buy new arts & crafts projects for me. I rarely finished a project but my Mom indulged me because the projects kept me occupied. It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized I am obsessed with process. As an adult I learned to follow through and finish projects while continuing to try new techniques. I graduated with a degree in Journalism and Art from the University of Utah. I am an avid sewer, art quilter, illustrator, and surface design artist. I enjoy sharing my art explorations with others through teaching, various publications and my blog: somethingcleveraboutnothing.blogspot.com
Lisa is hosting today's stop on the Blog Tour. Be sure to stop by her blog to learn something new (and "clever") and have a chance to win a copy of Fabric Printing at Home!
Fabric Printing at Home in Action
Over the last two days, I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop at Artistic Artifacts using a number of the kitchen surface design techniques found in Fabric Printing at Home. Here are some of the results.
You can see that the students REALLY enjoyed carving veggies and printing with them!
In honor of all that carving, today's giveaway is a Speedball Linoleum Carving Tool Set (handle with 5 different tips)! Leave a comment by 11:00 PM (Eastern USA time) answering the question: What's the most unusual item you've ever used to print fabric? Your comment also enters you in the final drawing on February 15 for a free copy of Fabric Printing at Home: Quick and Easy Fabric Design Using Fresh Produce and Found Objects.
And now for the winner of yesterday's giveaway (a Rollrite Foam Brayer)....congratulations to Elizabeth Gibson! Please email me with your contact information (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can send off your prize.
