I just finished the Architecture theme fabric for Deborah Boschert. The winner of the fabric collection was chosen on September 15...congrats to Nancy Roberts...I'll be sending the 6" square off to you this week.
Here's how I made the fabric...
Deborah requested blues for her fabric color. I mixed up a couple of blue transparent fabric paints and free-hand painted the background.
To give the piece a bit of texture, I slipped one of my hot glue on cardboard texture blocks under the fabric and did some brayer rubbings using a couple of blue opaque fabric paint colors.
For the architectural motifs, I researched on Pinterest and found some column and arch designs which I enlarged and traced. I then transferred the designs and carved a number of Speedy Carve print blocks. I also created some adhesive fun foam blocks in the shapes of some of the motifs. I had such a great time playing with layering that I ended up creating two pieces for Deborah.
|Here's the second piece I designed for Deborah.|
And here is the 6" square that will be heading Nancy's way.
This theme stymied me for a while...but I'm finally happy with my solution.
