This weeks Creative Tuesday challenge was to create something that represents Simply Cute or Simply Darling. Being a southern bell at heart I couldn't resist going with darling.
And I'm sure you see where this is headed. I mean are puppies darling, right?
I say yes.
So, I picked a picture of Sammy (the one year old golden) and tried a to me new technique of painting on fabric. I'm smitten with how the paint spreads and mixes and excited about what I have planned next for this piece.
In case your wondering the paint is called PROfab transparent which I sourced from Pro Chemical & Dye. And I am painting on white cotton that is prepared for dye (PFD).
In the next phase of this work, I will be making a quilt sandwich (adding batting and backing) and then trying my hand at some thread painting to add texture and dimension. I'm thinking that this will be the piece I enter in Lily Pad Quilting's Pets On Quilts in August.
Yes, you will have to wait a whole month (give or take) to see this evolve. Apologies in advance, but I promise it will be worth the wait.
And I can already tell that I am going to want to make one of these for Katie. And I'm already toying around with the idea of going bigger. Like way, bigger. monster. created. Awesome!
And.. in case you'd like to join in the fun on this creative meme... you have a whole extra week to get your doodle on for Simply Cute or Simply Darling. Read more and hope you join us!
Wishing you puppy licks and sunshine!
