It seems I am so longing for summer I am subconsciously doing a series of art in orange and blue! Last night I watched a Colouriscious tutorial ( http://ow.ly/4Yef6 ) on slashing fabrics and at 10:30 p.m. went out to the Quilt Shed and layered three projects to finish this morning.
Mounted on artist's canvas, slashed batiks.
|My dye supplies are in there somewhere...|
|Well, that was BEFORE.|
Here are the AFTER pix.
I got the ribbon chain idea from a popular scrapbooking site-very festive! :?}
|NOW I know what I actually own-there were several moments of surprised discovery, |
"I didn't know I had that!"
|My dye supplies! Wahoo! Let the classes begin! I am ready! Note the Alexander Henry jungle ironing board cover hiding in the corner-only the best in the Quilt Shed!|
|Now I can see what I have for the next show, and what I need more of... oh, and note the stacks and stacks of 'vintage' quilt magazines? I did the math. If and when they all sell for fifty cents each, I will have over $400 in my pocket!|
|The New north wing. I found the floor!|
|The New South wing!|
p.s. Don't look in my garage. My "too much stuff" from the Quilt Shed had to go somewhere...
I spent the last two days dyeing. I need to have the whole spectrum for sales, but it seems everyone buys only the brights. Which works out well, as I LOVE to dye the brights! And she who hates ironing (me) finds the ironing of the finished pieces the most delightful, magical part of the process! All that yummy color!
