A Wrinkle In Time

I like wrinkles... on my paper fabric!   And time seems to just disappear so quickly when I am having fun making it.  Or is it fabric paper?  I always get it mixed up... :)
Thought I'd had enough of pink... but here I am, making more!  And a bit too much at that... notice the big blobs above?  Oops.  Paper towel time. 
But it was fun adding those same leftover paper towel bits to this piece.  And below, the piece is dry, edges curling, ready for my  'submissive ironing' as I call it!
I have to say, this type of detail... the shimmer on the paper towel texture is just downright exciting to me!  I like it so much! 
and on to the next piece...
Orange.  "Orange you glad?"  Definitely! (sorry, very old knock knock joke just popped up into my head!)
Proverbs 31:25!  Love it!
Although it's wet and a bit gooey, it's looking good.  Once dry, I decide whether or not to add anything more. 
And the next piece... "Green Goddess" perhaps? I used some notes I had written for recipes while we were away from home, and so they were ripped and thrown in onto the paper layer underneath. (We love Baked Oatmeal!)
And that's the end of my evening. I did one more piece in a bright green that didn't fit on my plastic garbage sack for drying.  But Fun.  Totally engrossing, and a definite happy feeling for me! 

Next evening:  I've added a touch of foiling when the paint was still slightly sticky... and some screen printing in white... (tulip and word/writing pattern from Margaret Applin's Etsy shop). Should I cut them up for more hearts?  Maybe.  I'm thinking some of it, but not all. By the way, these are fairly small pieces of fabric paper - slightly smaller than a fat quarter each.
and the next evening... a bit of silver foil ~ love this effect.

Have a great one, whatever it is you're doing in time... wrinkle...  or not!
