On this first Monday in August I thought I'd share a shot of three of the four hibiscus series that I've painted so far as they appeared on the design wall before I layered them in preparation for quilting.
I used a little bit of foil and Misty-fuse to make the beetle sparkle on this resist/dye-painted hibiscus.
And a bit here on this dye-painted one too. I'll hit it with thread when I do the quilting.
I have nearly finished the quilting on the acrylic ink hibiscus. I was a little stumped about what to do in the background; but after I examined the original photo I realized that in the greenery of the background, there were lots of buds among the leaves. And hibiscus buds would be a lot of fun to quilt.
No, you can't see the back yet...
Tomorrow I will post a tell-all about how I did the resist/dye-painted hibiscus on the left in the photo at the top.
Until then, there are design walls aplenty at Judy's blog (here).
