Fabric Collage - Breathe

I'm working on a free online class about how to make image transfers (to fabric) for ARTchix Studio.com using their collage and transparency images. After trying several different transfer methods to write the tutorial, I decided to use one of the iron-on transfers I made for this class to create something -see below : ) I think the image transfers I did onto fabric came out so beautifully, they were simply calling me to work with them! I truly enjoyed creating this piece and matted it on watercolor paper so it is ready to frame, like the two fabric collages I created for Collage Mania II.

Fabric Collage, originally uploaded by creativelenna.

The image in this fabric collage is from the Women in Art paper collage sheet by ArtChix Studio. I transfered this image to fabric using iron-on transfer paper and will give more details on how to do this in the free image transfer class. Some of the other methods I will go over will be printing collage images directly onto fabric and a gel medium transfer technique that works with ARTchix images. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a site update at ARTchix Studio-that's when you will find this new class uploaded!

Note 5/19/08! The site has been updated! Find all of the ARTchix Studio Free Classes right HERE. I have a number of free classes there and you'll find tons of ideas & instruction from many acomplished and creative artists : )

This fabric collage, titled Breathe, is now matted and ready to be framed . . . . and it was was purchased since this original post by our Pet Sitter April Dube, who fell in love with it when she saw it! : ) I also ended up writing a short tutorial on how to create a fabric collage like the one you see here for the ARTchix site. To read it, follow this direct link. I hope you enjoy!
