Have you ever made a quilt that you wish had just that bit more... it isn't doing it for you or you feel something is missing? I think every quilter has at least one quilt like that. So what do you do about it? Here's an idea that might shock you. How about adding a Ghost Image? No not an image of a ghost, but rather an impression of some object.

Daphne has done just that with this piece... can you see her leaf that she added over the top of her finished quilt?

But how did she do it? You might think she used a sheer fabric... but no, she used a freezer paper template and Paintstiks.

I hear there is quite an art to using Paintstiks and I know Daphne has some clever tricks and tips on how to use them properly to get the most benefit from them.... and making Ghost Images is only the start. You can do a whole lot more with Paintstiks. Here's some work from Daphne's students who have attended her online workshop Fun With Paintstiks. You can see how much fun they had creating new fabrics and pictures
