I am on a mission. I contacted a blogger about trading artwork, and she agreed to trade for one of my little gratitude pieces.
I also am behind on my Klimt challenge piece, and knew I wanted to make a tiara using thick mica infused medium by Golden. More about that later...
Here are all the scenes on the scroll of fabric. I used blue, and a blue-gray solids and three different textile paints, all metallic. I like shiny-sparkly stuff! You know good and well I'll also use metallic thread to quilt this, heh, heh.
So I played with paint, using brushes, sponges and five stencils. When I say play, I mean I have no plan, I just add color til there is enough/too much. If it seems too plain I add some gold or darkest blue.
This is not my first time at the rodeo... I know how quilting stitch can change the look of a piece of art.
I know in my world, I seldom throw anything painted away because it's almost always usable in some form.
I don't worry, just keep adding more!
After the cropping, bordering and quilting, I'll add beads, stamped words, gemstones, thick threads, and bits of lovelies I have kept for years. It's so much fun, this play. So engaging. I lose track of time, become calm, and get excited at the same time. Art is healing.
