when i first read becky shander's dryer sheet article that was published in the premier issue of art quilting studio magazine (july, 2009), i was thrilled to see such an ordinary around-the-house-product being used in such creative ways! so thrilled, in fact, that i immediately salvaged the pile of dryer sheets that had been accumulating in my laundry room and started playing (you can see the fun here!)!
and i think that becky must have planted a tiny seed of dryer-sheet-inspiration that day, because when i started thinking about creating the little "child of art" quiltlet in yesterday's post, those dryer sheets were the first thing that i wanted to start playing with again! they're fun to use in their original white, but it's amazing at how well they absorb color, too.....just a little acrylic paint (and lots of paper towels to catch the mess!) and before you know it, you've got a stack of dryer-sheet-rainbow-happiness just waiting to be included in your next project!
thank you SO much, becky, for sprinkling your sweet little seeds of creativity throughout blogland......you will always be a beautiful inspiration to me!!!
