Experimenting with Cardboard and Paint

Every notice how you can have something lying around for years (yes) and never try it, but then one day you feel you have permission and you can give it a whirl?

What is my inspiration? Why Julie Booth's new book, Fabric Printing at Home (Quarry Books, 2015). 

So it is with me and fabric paint. I have a jar that is so old it is dried up...almost...I added water and mixed it up. I used it to ink a roll made from corrugated cardboard and then I rolled the cardboard over some fabric.
