Good morning everyone! I said I would be posting more about my technique on “Artistic Applique’ Pieces”. Go to Artisticalchemyblog.wordpress.com to see this post that discusses this technique that will be taught up at Zephyr in my workshop at our Artistic Alchemy Retreat in September.
I wanted you to see a closer view of the behind the Kaffe Fassett “paperweight, or maybe it’s Roman glass”. I LOVE these particular prints of Kaffe Fassetts fabrics. It is interesting the pattern on the top fabric are circles, and I make the applique piece in circle shapes. I really like circles, especially spiraling circles. Check out my board on Pinterest that is called, “Circles, Circles”. Yikes, maybe I need some counseling? The fabrics underneath the Kaffe top piece are all very OLD pieces from my stash. A great way to use older pieces or even pieces you don’t like anymore. They give great illusion and textural interest.
I can’t wait to work on these hearts. They are four inch squares of fabric. How about one of these hearts, add some beads, some ribbon, and a pin back. Give it to a valentine. Make time to create this week. Hugs, Heidi
