TYE DYE CLOTHS FOR APPLIQUILT JOURNALS
BEGINNING 3-D ART
100% cotton pieces & Rit dye
on to the "real thing".
Once the practice pieces on paper towels have been turned in,
I give each student 2 pieces of cotton cloth.
I get all my 100% cotton fabric from garage and estate sales in bedding,
and rip the pieces to the size I need. Saves me hundreds of dollars a year.
to use their favorite Tye Dye techniques they've discovered in the prelims.,
and use them to create two pieces of cloth that are visually pleasing together.
These will later to used for the outside & inside covers of their Applique Journals.
Let's see how they did.
We start with senior Samantha Tan & 8th grader Leanne Alcoy.
Both girls have created pieces that will flow together beautifully for their journals.
Next are 8th graders Dana Ahmad & Yusra Azmi.
These girls have chosen the exact same colors for both pieces but different design techniques
which also make them look great together.
Junior Jillian Morris & senior Alexis Bilas-Imperial both picked one or two colors from their first one to help tie together their second one for terrific visual flow.
Here are the pieces that junior Connie Wu & 8th grader Palmer Patel created.
These are so cool,
they remind me of the newest technique on Pinterest,
These very dramatic & stunning works above were made by senior Sarah Woo & junior Lynette Lee.
And we end with 8th grader Andres Lara,
whose two pieces were so eye-catching I had to show them both in their entirety.
