I finally got around to taking picture of some of the things that I am working on. My goal is to do this once a week, but ummm, I am not making any promises. My weeks are sometimes fulllllllll, but I try to do some creative thing every day.
First, my painted canvas and hearts. This is just the beginning for this piece. The fabric hearts you see underneath are to be embellished with stitching and beads, then attached to the canvas. The goal is to add some words/phrases about love, some more shapes, etc. Now that I've shared it, maybe I'll get to work on those hearts. I think they will help determine what goes on next and where.
This is of the fabric hearts close up (click on photos for larger view). They are from pieces of my hand-dyed fabrics, fused to Fast2Fuse (a stiff fusible), which I love.
Second is my little piece with waves. The base is a scrap piece of purple fabric that I scrunched up, ironed down the scrunchies, then rolled on a brayer full of lumiere. Let it dry, ironed it, scrunched it up, ironed the creases in, rolled another color of paint. My intention right now is to add some stitching, beads, wire spirals . . . The waves are fabric backed with a fusible.
One thing about sharing these two is I got a few more ideas while looking at these photos, so maybe next week I'll have progress to show/share. Thanks for stopping by and if you get an idea from them or for them, please share. Until tomorrow. . .
