(collaborative project – my section is the top painted hand)
Cotton, fusible web, batting, acrylic paint, yarn, wooden stick
Fused raw edge appliqué, pieced, painted, machine and hand stitched
This was my first attempt at painting on fabric. I had to make several attempts before I could get a predictable response from the materials I was working with.
A member of my critique group suggested that we divide a photo into twelve sections and have individuals work on each section independently. The size was specified, although any style or technique could be used. A color copy was given to each person to keep the palette in relative harmony.
