foil flower and instant gratification
sometimes, especially now, when I am working on a few large projects, I get the need for a bit of instant gratification. Yesterday I needed to finish something - right away.
So I did a quick fused collage based on Linda Kemshall's "Pieced Landscape" on DMTV.
Here is my quick sketch (see, my sketchbook does not only have works of art in it, lol.)
Frieda Anderson's method of drawing the pattern on the parchment paper, (I use a wax crayon), ironing the fabric on, pulling it of an cutting out using the lines which transfer to the back of the fabric. By the way, she has been presenting a great series on art elements and principle in the last week or so)
Here is the little bit of free motion grass added at the bottom right and the ribbon I decided to bind it with
This might come in handt for a landscape class I have been asked to do in a little while. Easy for beginners. and easy to create lots of different landscapes.
