What are you most proud of? Well, I think that my second attempt turned out much better than the first one did. I had fun with the colors also.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful that your hands don't get into the colors like mine did. I managed to carry red across my accent lines. I've tried the Tide pen and Clorox and may end up just coloring them in because it doesn't look like the red is going to come out. Well, ok, that AND the fact that the Clorox has bleached the underlying fabric. One of my brighter moments, NOT! LOL. But I'm still pleased with the end result. Now on to binding and finding another photo - maybe my Granddaughter, which is why I wanted to take this course in the first place.

Thank you! I was a little bummed with the first one, but greatly encouraged with this one!

This is just gorgeous! So much talent is revealed here! The lines are beautiful and the colors striking.

Red is a funny color. Exterior red paint used in a mural will be one of the first colors to fade. Red ink on fabric is impossible to get out. Looks like you gave it a good try to remove it. I had to go back to find what you were talking about. It didn't jumb out and catch my eye. With each project we learn something new.

Love her. It looks like a water color.
