Fashioned Pages

I have started going to a drawing class locally, unfortunately it was closed last week so I started to play with some of the charcoal sketches from the previous two weeks. I am realistic about my current standard of drawing but I do feel that the Access Course has made me far more confident and improved my work. The drawing sessions on the course were sometimes really dispiriting as the standard was mostly so high.

I scanned parts of the drawings and used layers and ‘colour match’ from a photo of a flower.
I transferred the images using a gel medium onto white felt and cotton.This is fun to do and I suppose the next step would be to manipulate the photos of the stitched pieces on the computer. Well, you could just keep on playing really.


  1. It's great to know that gel medium transfers work just as well on fabric as they do on paper. Yours look great! Thanks so much for sharing this, I always enjoy reading your blog and check it daily. :)

  2. How did you find the gel medium? I want to transfer some images but don't have an inkjet printer. Does it work for detailed images like photos?

  3. I just want to say Hi and say how much I enjoy reading your blog. Great work and very informative.
