The last thing I needed to do this week was spend time making some new project. I was, alas, compelled otherwise. I was inspired by something I saw on That's Clever, but I changed direction a bit. At any rate, it was fun. I really like the end result of painting the fabric with gel medium -- the texture is really cool afterwards. Plus, it creates a smooth, non-porous surface for the decorative painting later. I don't think these are weatherproof, but they could definitely hang inside a patio umbrella or on a porch or covered patio.
