Silk fabric art and more for sale in my CraftFoxes shop!

I'm cleaning out my studio and selling several of my art panels and craft projects in my online shop at CraftFoxes.com - check it out!

I enjoy looking at my work, but it's time for someone else to enjoy it...then I'll have room to create more!

This art panel is called "Silk Sunset" - imagine the sun setting and cracking the ocean like glass. It's a mixed media piece with silk, printed Lutradur, acrylic ink and pouring medium, and silk roving.

I'm uploading a variety of work to my CraftFoxes shop little by little, and everything is priced to move - enjoy!

Embossed paper bookmark

embossed paper bookmark lisa fulmer

This was a fun little bookmark to make with my die-cutting machine. The paper went through with a pinstripe texture plate first, then I used a bird die to emboss and deboss a repeat pattern across the bookmark. I rubbed some pastel pigment over the top to highlight the texture, spritzed it with a little pastel fixative, colored in a few birds with a marker, then glued some die-cut birds on top in a contrasting blue.

After punching a few holes around the birds, I glued the embossed green paper on top of a sheet of the blue, so the blue peeks out through the holes, plus the double layer gives the bookmark more rigidity.

ATC group - paint-stamping with household objects

paint stamped artist trading cards


This month, our group's theme for our artist trading card swap was paint. Last month, we played with paint-stamping using household objects like corks, cookie cutters, wadded up paper, carpet pads, pencil erasers, etc. It was a fun experiment with surface design - I used the large sheet that I stamped to crop into ATCs for this month. The little purple star blings are sitting on top of vintage bingo markers.
