Alex and Ricky welcome back Katie Fowler to discuss what she has been up to since her last visit (Show 1807). Katie has fallen in love with the Mandala designs and taken that love of coloring that so many find enjoyable to a whole new level…coloring on fabric. She also discusses how as an artist, it is so important to be true to yourself and to embrace who you are.
Katie’s easy to use color wheel tool is a handy way to audition color combinations for any of your artwork. She shares examples of completed colored drawings that feature various color combinations. Then it’s on to the fun of using pre-printed Mandala color fabric sheets. The quilt block based designs allow you to color, heat set, and use as any other printed fabric. Katie shares tips for achieving the best results.
