I am so thankful to everyone who took the time to look at this and leave such helpful suggestions and comments! I am clearly out of my realm here and I am painfully aware that it shows. But what the heck, I might as well make my learning experience public :). I added more paint last night and this is what it looked like:
I still hated it so this morning I decided to wash it in the washer. I hadn’t heat set anything yet. This is how it came out:
My “moon” is woefully offcenter, if only my horizon line were! Time for more paint. This time I added some Jacquard gold watered down and applied with a foam brush to the center area. I also used more shiva to give it more wave:
I think I might call the the ugly quilt. Wonder if Ami Simms is still doing her contest….. Actually, close up, I like the lok of the gold on top.
I haven’t solved my horizon line issue. Maybe I will wash over the whole thing with the gold….I am about to conclude that painting is not my thing. I suupose I could use this as a smalll rug. I have this thing about everything having to turn out and be used for something.
Again, feel free to add your 2 cents worth here. Pondering the next step…..and the big question, is it possible to make this worse?
