Found Object Stamping

June 19

During a workshop session with artist Melanie Brummer from  Slipstream Fabric Finishes, we had some time left over to just creatively mess around a bit.  She motioned to a bag on a shelf in her studio and asked us to just empty the contents out on the floor.  Oh.  What. Insane. FUN!  The bag was stuffed full of all sorts of found objects and we had so much fun stamping with all the different items.  So here is the short and easy (but with all the fun) on how you can do some found object stamping onto fabric.  Click on the picture below to download the tutorial.  For more information on where you can book a stamp and dye class with Melanie, visit her website: www.dyeandprints.co.za for more information.
