White on Black #3
It is one of my favorites and there wasn't room for it in my show in Covallis, so I'm happy it's getting out in the world.
I've been thinking of doing more black and white pieces so this week I played a bit with some small pieces. I had a baggy full of 1.5"squares that where cut up from larger squares of black circles on white. I did these several years ago and then never used them. There was fusible on the backs of all of them so I laid the squares onto a piece of 8"x10"batting and fused them down. Then quilted it.
I like how it came out and am thinking about how to do something of the same idea, but much larger.
The Weekly Leaf
This week I played with some of the tea bag papers I've been saving. I drew some leaves on the paper with a brown ultra fine sharpie.
Colored the leaves with a Derwent Inktense pencil.
Then used a water brush to go over the pencil.
The tea bag was then fused to my fabric with misty fuse. I did turn it over when I fused it so the leaves where curving in the other direction.
