Birch Trees

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am delighted that the piece actually resembles the picture I had imagined. There was a lot of thought and stops and starts while trying to decide how to break up the picture into pieces and then find fabric that would work. I think that the trees look great and most have at least 4 different white fabrics, each of them reacted differently with the fabric paint. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use your imagination, follow your instincts and remember that with the paints, don't start off too dark as you can't lighten what is already there but you can embellish and add shading. Have fun.

very nice nice artwork want to have your video tutorial
Kay Gee answered:
Thank you for your compliment. You may be waiting for a very long time for any tutorial. It is more a seat of the pants process and a lot of auditioning of fabric.

Kay Gee answered:
The trees are a combination of up to four different white fabrics, raw edges and turned edges. Sewn on with monofilament. Hope this answers your question. Thank you for your comments.
