The Printed Fabric Bee Queen for February was Lesley Riley.
Her theme was Mosaic.
It was a challenging theme for everyone in the Bee it seems.
I did NOT like my first attempts:
and dyed the fabric.
I thought I would stamp over this background
with these simple foam stamps. . .
. . . but after one stamp. . .umm, absolutely NOT.
Maybe a more transparent paint but. . .well I just wasn't feeling it.
I started over with a piece of snow dyed fabric. . .
. . .and painted squares through another stencil I made. . .
. . .it was pretty but I didn't think it looked very mosaic-y.
Not to mention that Mister didn't approve at all.
He is very critical!
I created a new stencil of a flower and tried again with the Jacquard textile paint. . .
. . . and I liked it!
Here is the full piece I completed.
I cut off a 12" square for Lesley
and a 6" square for one lucky giveaway winner.
