I'm super excited about this book! I'm a practical person and that spills over into my creative side as well. The first thing that struck me about Julie's book is her design tools can be found in any kitchen. The next thing I discovered are Julie's instructions... they work! I get so burned up when you're trying to learn a new technique and the author forgets a few steps assuming you already know that part... this doesn't happen here and I highly recommend you add a copy to your creative arts library.... but first... would you like to win a copy AND a 4 pack of handcrafted Fat Quarters?!
Julie's goal is to giveaway 14 copies of her new book, Fabric Printing at Home: Quick and Easy Fabric Design Using Fresh Produce and Found Objects!
Over the next two weeks there is a blog tour a day! From now until February 14th Julie plus one artist listed below will be sharing ideas and techniques from Julie's book. Please be sure to visit with these fabulous fiber artists. Hop on over to their blogs but don't you dare leave me until you've posted a comment here for a chance to win a free book AND a 4 pack of handcrafted Fat Quarters!

|I started by painting a silk scarf with fabric paints|
|Following Julie's directions I created a flour resist.|
|Once the flour dried I crinkled it to create interesting cracks and applied fabric paint. (cure fabric according to the directions)|
|I thought the scarf needed something more so flipping through Julie's book I came across a section on creating stamps.|
|Following the directions I created a stamp... from cardboard... who knew?!|
|I stamped the scarf... mmm... does it need more?! I'll flip through a few more chapters to see what I can discover!|
Give Julie's book a try - it will not disappoint!
Please leave a comment for a chance to win! I'll draw a winner on February 14th! What a sweet Valentine!
