So I finally decided to do a Bigfork Bay Cotton Company applique wall hanging. Got it all fused together then put it on the background and it faded. So now I have to put a different background. Please help me decide. If you don't like any, how about suggestions?

Here's the original one

#1 change - same fabric as the tips of antlers

#2 idea - a hand dyed fabric I had

Of those, I like the blue best. Perhaps you could try one with more green to simulate more forest.

Too bad you donít have another light batik, because I like the middle one best except for the fact that your tips gets lost now. If you have a different light, like a tan that is light, but even a bit darker than the one that is there, it may pop everything out.

Wow, beautiful! I like the blue one but I also really like the first one, the one you said didn't have enough contrast. Hang a picture of each of them up and leave them up for a week or so somewhere where you will walk by them and see them often. After walking by and viewing them both for a week, you should be able to pick the one that appeals most to you. It's a little trick that I've used from time to time when I can't make a decision about something. Usually by the end of a few days I find I'm drawn to one over the other and it might work for you.

Of course, if none of the options work, just send it to me and I'll take care of it. :lol:

I like the green idea. Making it look in it's natural environment sounds appealing. Great job on it.

I like the blue best. Perhaps a blue that looks more like a real sky color/forest color might work too.

The blue really makes the antlers pop and it feels more 3-D... I like the green background idea, too.
