Wendy- Thanks for your generous offer of help with the art of trapunto.....when I get going you're likely to hear from me many times. It's just so pretty.
After seeing what others have posted I feel like a preschooler, but here is what I am working on. I have been practicing zen doodles and so I decided to use the leaves on a wallhanging. I have highlighted the zen doodles with gold Lumiere paint. Haven't decided on the border yet, but as I am also practicing New York Beauties, I may do that for a wavy border.
polyjvan9~Your zendoodle leaves are just FABULOUS! Please tell us more about how you did them.
pollyjvan9- Your leaf wallhanging is so pretty. I'll be watching for more info as well.
azwendyg------------I felt like it needed some embellishment so I added a bunch of beading, but am not totally happy with that....
I've been looking at this quilt in minute detail for so long, I don't feel like I have a good sense how it is in respect to overall design/impact anymore...
Suggestions and comments please???
Boy do I understand that dilemma! As an author you get so sick of looking at a project you can't see a misspelled word like odg :)
I personally agree with you. I think the top could use just a bit of livening. Here are my first thoughts which you may well have experimented with already. On scraps of course-- did you try some smudges of perhaps a metallic paint for the illusion of fluttering leaves here and there? Maybe some very delicate strings of almost invisible beads dancing along the green? Just some ideas......
Love your technique and your workmanship. Almost makes me weep in frustration for the lack of finesse in my work!
Watching to see where you go with this...........:)
Love what's being posted, great work!
