Prayer Flags

I joined the Prayer Flag swap on
ChristianPaper Artists Yahoo Group...
had to make 9 flags.....
didn't think I could get that done...

I started out stitching.
The bird above is a piece I made years ago and never did anything with.
So I cut it and made it a prayer flag.


Well.... that opened up a whole new world of joy!
And I finished my flags using fabric I had "gel printed"!

Thank you, Patty.... you inspired a bunch of us!

(I did my gel printing on fabric that had a light script on it.)

And for my "grace" I either stitched it or used muslin I ran through my printer.


You should really try this...
it's so fun!


Here is another flag that is simple...

I do like making these....
I'm in another swap making them for the end of the year as well.
They can be any size really....
I made mine by putting the top piece
(that had an unattractive back due to paint or stitching)
onto a base muslin piece!

Dear Linda ~ I just Love what you've created ... each and every one is beautiful!

I am more than happy that others are as crazy for the gelatin monoprinting ... it works so beautifully on fabric and more

Happy Wednesday to ya

These are just fabulous, Linda. Couldn't pick a favorite if I tried. I love the word "grace." It's what we aspire to -- I don't always succeed but it is a goal.
