Ready for the Fun
I've been continuing in my exploration of using photos in quilts, and this is the most recent in the series. That photo is me, at maybe age 2 or 3, somewhere in there. (Looks like it was taken right before a birthday party or some such event.) I was experimenting with inkjet transfer and for some reason when I transferred a black and white photo onto a pale lavender fabric, got an image that was a lovely shade of blue.
The background fabric is one I painted ages and ages ago, and then I fused organza on and added stitching. It was a very fun process.
I'm looking forward to playing more with inket transfers... looks like many wonderful effects can result.
