This week, I’ve been taking you through my process of creating a window of my botanical sketches for a customer whose wife has a windowless office. I explain the idea and construction craziness here, and show you my color choices and design process here. Time for some glamour close ups! These are all 6″ x 8″, I layer my background fabric on top a layer of batting, then a layer of stiff fusible interfacing called Peltex for stiffness. I start with an idea of what flower I want to sketch in my mind, lower my feed dogs and GO! No marking ahead of time. I’ve got a couple of videos of this here, the ones labelled free motion machine sketching.
|Here’s an extra Daisy – I actually made this one 1st to practice:|
Friday – the big reveal, how I put it all together!
