Below, you will see a failed attempt. But all is not lost because I learned some things from the experience.
I can be manipulative. With fabric that is. I quilted a cutting from Ken’s shirt (thanks, Hon) and, after washing it so that it puckered, painted on it with fabric paints and even tried some dye mixes. I have a lot more to learn about this, but the idea is exciting to me.
I can look at something and decide it doesn’t work, in this case the purple did not work with the blue background. I added a lot of blue thread to the mix and it helped. I like the fact that art isn’t all just a natural ability. You can analyze and determine what a piece needs and fix it. Erasers are allowed.
I can hand embroider easier thru layers of quilted fabric than I can thru stabilizer on the back of machine embroidery. So, I should get rid of the stabilizer and thicken my fabrics. I like doing handwork. It’s a whole lot easier to hear the tv with hand work than with machine work.
I like the horizon effect. I am going to incorporate that more.
