Another Greeting Card
The trouble with making compositions out of fabric scraps is that you have to spread everything out all over the place and work in a real mess. I keep losing bits and pieces and spend half my time looking for them. But there's a real satisfaction when you find the right colour combinations and it all comes together.
So far, I've got 26 images to print out to see which ones will work on greeting cards and which won't.
Yesterday I wasted time preparing (painting) some muslin so I could draw some new faces, but I used a coarse canvas-like fabric that didn't like my Sharpies and pencil crayons. Today I have to do it all over again with the finer, smoother fabric that I've used in the past. I should have just used the tried and true to begin with.
I am happy with my latest image and hope it will be among the ones that make the final cut for my card sale.
