I've been working on smaller pieces because the size is so manageable I can see results quickly. Life has been hectic here and I'm thankful for the short spurts of time I have in my studio. The piece below uses sheer overlays so it will also work as a sample for my new workshop - Layered Naturescapes. I started with one of my photographs, enlarged and copied on a laser copy machine. I then transferred the copy to fabric using something called "Picture Perfect" - kind of like an acrylic medium. The fabric has the paper photo on top.
Next step was to machine quilt using a "glitzy" thread on the bottom layer. A shiny thread will show through the sheer layer.
