paper vintage imagery, thermo-fax screens, colored pencils, rubber
stamps, paint sticks, tea bags and so much more! The result will be a
fantastic fabric collage for later enhancement and embellishment with
stitching or quilting.

mixing, blending and shading. You’ll master fine lines and details
through the control of bleeding. Discover the broad range of
