Cloning Myself

I have days where I want to work on so many different things. . .all at the same time. It's so hard to choose and it seems like I usually want to work most on the things that aren't as crucial to get done by a certain date/time. Oh if only I could clone myself. But then I wondered, if I had clones, would my clones get the enjoyment of the process like I do? Would their experiences be somehow visualized in my head? Would the clones do things just as I would do them? Okay, maybe the clone idea is pretty silly. But I'm guessing some of you have wished you could do it all at once too. Right?

For part of the day yesterday I played with something new. This is a small piece (9 x 12") of MultiPurpose cloth by Roc-Lon. I started out by spritzing color on it with spray dyes and let that dry. I then used my Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric to doodle the designs.


And then I added some vibrant colors with some fabric paints. These really made it come alive.


I'm not sure if I'm done with it at this point, I'll have to think about it for a little bit.  My plan is to use this to make a notepad cover/folio.

  1. This is really lovely -- I really like seeing each step in your process. What kind of fiber is the cloth made of?

    -- I've thought of cloning myself too -- but it would probably lead to twice as much work for me to do...LOL

  2. I really like this piece a lot. The pastel/subtle background is perfect for your "doodling" and the subsequent color you added just pops. It's wonderful.

  4. I really like this piece...from very soft to the intensity of great colors. As for cloning...I think you have answered the question of why we aren't cloned already. Happy Creating Dear...
