It's a Process
Awhile back, I think I posed the picture of this piece that I started a couple months ago:
I took that, and added a red sphere to the center, then quilted it:
Do you notice how the quilt design is there, but it doesn't really stand out well?
What I did to help pull out the design, was start added Shiva paintstik to it:
After adding the red, I realized that the center motif still did not pop out enough, so I brough in the white. I then painted the "rays" on the outside border in red also. This is the finished piece:
The finished piece picture doesn't do it justice really, the lighting wasn't quite right, yellowed. Before Art-A-Whirl I will be taking much better quality photos of all of my pieces, in case they sell.
I finally get to go back to the studio today, after a stint at the temp job. I have to stop at the fabric store on the way, as I'm low on solids and my next project idea requires solids in multiple colors.
I also need to call the Nolting people, as they called while I was at work to let me know my frame is in! I need to schedule a time to have it delivered and set up! I will try to schedule it for tomorrow, so I have today to move all of the fabrics I have stored under my current one. I hope he can do it tomorrow!
I have also started another project which I will be unveiling in the next few weeks or so, so watch for that!
Have to bundle up again today to go out and about, there's a fresh layer of snow this morning. Have a great day!
