I'm catching up on my blogposts as I've been out of town for a while, first teaching at the NC Symposium - home for a day and then off to the Quilt Symposium of Alabama. One of the workshops I taught at NC was my Layered Naturescapes. It is a fun, fun workshop to teach as you see such creativity.
The process is so interesting, preparing the background with appliques, laying organza over it and treating it with more appliques. to get this wonderful before and after.
This is the start of a seascape. More than one color was used to silkscreen the wavy ferns giving it more dimension.
Another before and after of a forest and dragonfly. The chosen background fabric is especially wonderful. What seemed like a "too busy" fabric turned out to be the perfect backdrop for a forest.
And this lovely before and after, the way the organza was painted gives the feel of a ray of light shining down.
To go from this beginning....
to this is quite amazing.
I have more students work to share next time. I get thrills and chills at the creativity of my students - so much talent!
