Traci takes us through the process of making masks, stencils, and using both positive and negative images.
The first one shows a background printed with needlepoint grid, a mask and stencil I cut and used to print. The dark blue is a watercolor paint diluted with water and sprayed through the stencil.
Here is one that is sort of a hot mess of doodles, paint, and prints. Might make a good background!
It is very messy and time-consuming to go through this layering process, but you can produce some very unique papers. Of course, you can print fabric the same way. I would probably use fabric paint and/or mix a textile medium into the acrylic paint if I wanted to sew through it.
