I love combining words and pictures! So far my experiments have involved adding words into the felt with fibre, writing with pencil thin strands.. and embroidery, I've embroidered by hand or machine directly into the finished felt and had a go at machine embroidering words onto water soluble paper and felting them in. They all work well and give their own character.. but for ages I've been longing to incorporate TEXT - that looks like actual pages. And I finally found a way :)
Bubble Jet Set - applied to silk, then the silk gets ironed onto freezer paper and you can print right onto it with a normal inkjet printer.. then rinse with the BJ Rinse solution. I brought my Bubblejet Set & Rinse at Barnyards
For my first baby steps with this product I did an A4 sheet of silk chiffon and another with silk habotai.
Silk treated with Bubble Jet Set, dried and ironed onto freezer paper.
Just need to trim it and its ready for printing on.

Next post I'll show you what I did with the chiffon
