Plain blue background, made to be nothing more than the support for…..something. But what?
I think it seems to be calling for paint! So, I spent more than a few happy moments going through my stencils and stamps and screens. And quite a few more moments deciding on paint colors. Always a good time–and then I get to actually use them!
Went with an all over grid of circles-
and green, orange and white paint, with a touch of yellow. Lots of nice circles, but most of them were too fuzzy and the overall effect was still all background and no focal point.
I thought I would try to emphasize a couple of the larger circles as focal points, so I made a couple of freezer paper templates. More paint, paint, paint!
Worked like a charm! And it’s always good to have a scrap of fabric handy for using up excess paint.
It’s hard to see the quilting lines, but I used copper colored holographic thread for a little sparkle, and of course, there will be beads! I will have to figure out what color to paint the canvas, since a bit will show on the top as well as the sides.
And black is not always the answer! I’ll try for that blue, I think. But beads first!!!
