Gang's All Here!

We all went to the Vernonia Quilt Fair.  It was a lot of fun, the quilts were beautiful, the lunch was delicious.  We had hoped to find more garage sales but there were only a couple.  Still, we had a blast together, as always!

I thought I would show a few more photos of the masking fluid workshop we had earlier this week.  Above is Mary's cat, she is still applying the fluid using a toothpick.

Now she is beginning to paint it after the masking fluid is all applied and dried.

Now the painting is finished and dried and she is beginning to remove the masking fluid.  It is very easy to remove, just rolls right off.

After all the dried masking fluid is removed, she drew around all the white areas that were left behind with a fine black marker to enhance the white.  Notice the little mouse in the kitty paws?
Hope you enjoyed the almost tutorial.  Thanks to April for sharing the technique with us!  I loved it!

  1. Wow that is a pretty cool medium. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. This looks like a great technique. Love the way that the cat has an almost Laurel Burch look to it.

  3. It was soooo fun! We all want to try it again.

    The Day in Vernonia was great...good food, great company!

  4. Had a great time with you girls at St. Mary's Quilt Fair. Bummed that there weren't more garage sales. Went to the Vernonia City website, and made a little complaint. Nothing too serious....but maybe they'll get the hint and keep the garage sales for September. Guess what...they've chosen the last week-end in August for their sales. That's Hood to Coast....and Hwy 202 & Hwy 47 are almost impassable those I don't see how we can even attend!!! RATS!
