Background

Saturday I’m taking an all-day class with Lenore Crawford.  We have our choice of three different patterns to use to learn her technique.  I chose the Yellow Poppies pattern (scroll down the page to see it).

 

I picked out all my fabrics except the background.  The background piece measures 20” x 25”, so I needed something bigger than a half yard. 

 

I looked for what felt like forever, but I couldn’t find a large enough cut of suitable fabric in my stash.  After buying 11 yards of fabric last week, I didn’t want to shop for more.

 

When all else fails, paint what you need.  It’s starting to feel like the new theme for the year.

 

So I started painting and this is what came out.

Two shades of blue sponged and brushed with a toothbrush over a base of the two blues, purple and lime green.
