OK – remember I was saying that I was leaning towards Sunflowers for the “Flora” challenge on Textile Abstractions…..well I changed my mind.
I was looking through an old Outdoor Canada book I picked up for 50 cents at the local thrift store…..WILDFLOWERS shouted out to me!
So, I just went with it…..I used all Jacquard paints – Textile Color, Dye-Na-Flow, Lumiere, & Neopaque. I wet the fabric (Its prepared for dyeing fabric) then starting laying down the colours. DH & I like watching Yarnell School of Fine Art shows on SCN. On Yarnell’s show, he showed how to make grass with the flick of a brush….did that with Lumiere green & gold.
I LIKE…..no I LOVE IT!!! DH likes it also.
Now, I will let it totally dry, heat set it and then start quilting it. Reveal day is August 1st…..
