Printing on Fabric with InkAid

Paint fabric with any InkAid. It comes in Clear, White, Red, Blue, Pearl and my fav, Bronze.
InkAid secures a fine printed image and preserves it.
I've painted cotton broadcloth with a combo of Bronze and Clear. I like the variegated result.
I've ironed my cloth onto HTC's Trans-Web. This is a terrific fusible. I love how it doesn't show with silk organza.
The photo was divided into printable size sections in Photoshop.
I sliced the cloth lengthwise into strips the width of the each printed photo.
 Next, I sliced the prepared cloth into the proper width.
I arrange the sections into a pleasing composition- out of the order in which it was painted wiht inkaid.
Manipulated Photo
Next to print! The fusible becomes the carrier sheet. It can now be printed like a sheet of paper. I did iron them so they weren't curled going though the printer.
After they are printed, I decided to fuse them to sheet of stabilizer that is equal to the total size of all the pictures. This is another HTC product that they call it CutAway. It is a poly/rayon non-woven material I find extremely versatile.
 Ready to stitch my drawing lines, sew into borders and mount!

journal page snap

       I love journaling. Often, when I'm working with paint, I grab my journal to do what I call a print-off.
I place the page right on top of the painted surface and it picks up a print of the colors.
Sooo Cooool!

Three times my life has opened.
Once, into darkness and rain.
Once, into what the body carries at all times within it and starts
to remember each time it enters the act of love.
Once, to the fire that holds all.
These three were not different.
You will recognize what I am saying or you will not.
But outside my window all day a maple has stepped from her leaves
like a woman in love with winter, dropping the colored silks.
Neither are we different in what we know.
There is a door. It opens. Then it is closed. But a slip of light 
stays, like a scrap of unreadable paper left on the floor,
or the one red leaf the snow releases in March.
