Sun Tiger


This piece is my entry into a juried show coming up soon.  I thread-painted the black areas on the butterfly on top of white fabric.  That is not one of the best decisions I've ever made.  Of course, the white showed through.  So, in addition to thread, I painted the black with black fabric paint.  The pale yellow areas are also fabric paint.  The piece is about 20" square.

Another winner, Roberta. Just stunning. Nothing wrong with a little paint. Just the trick.

Stunning Roberta, I really like the background..like a fence letting the light in.

Beautiful! It may not be the best decision but it sure worked out well!! When it's mixed media there's no restriction on using things we didn't intend when we began.

That is fantastic!.. and I love when others talk about their challenges with a project.. it makes it all seems so much more normal! I know some of my challenges have brought to bear of of my better work but in the moment they can bring a person to tears!
