I've had several bad experiences with the metallic water soluble resists, so I went over the gutta lines with soy wax, just to be extra sure. I couldn't decide what to do with the background, and because it looked so nice while white, I was seriously tempted to leave it that way. However, I decided to go with a creamy beige, with some swirly resist lines, also done with soy wax.
This was one of the most fun pieces I've painted to date.
This afternoon I got busy quilting this little number for my Mother for Christmas:
Her two favorite colors are blue and lavender. I don't think that the quilting lines show up in the pic, and I'm fairly certain that blogger won't let you enlarge it, so I apologize. I used some blue Shimmer, and it is quite lovely. As I was quilting away on it, I thought how nice it might look in Christmas colors, so I've started another scarf. I hope to get some wax on it tomorrow, and I will use the Rozome technique on it.
The "kitchen designer" is coming tomorrow to have a look at our disaster area and draw up some plans that will hopefully encompass ALL of my hopes and desires. I'm very excited about our new project. If you have any helpful hints or want to share the very best and/or very worst parts of your kitchen with me, I'm all ears. But you'd better comment quickly because she'll be here in a little more than 12 hours!!! HURRY!!!!
