Princess Rosebud

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's not a bad likeness. ;) The fabric was a piece gifted to me by my sister, so very special to me. I wanted to also highlight that, so decided to outline and color in the roses (a favorite subject of mine) as well. They are a little distracting, but the piece as a whole pleases me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just follow Lola's great instructions. Step 1, then step 2 ... and keep going until you decide you're done! There are no mistakes -- you can correct and improve lots of things with colored pencils -- who knew?

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric and thread
  • iron-on stabilizer and batting
  • colored pencil

Really great picture! I agree with you about the layering as well. I'm also using a very faint batik for some of mine and that adds lots of depth. Great job on this!
patticole answered:
I was looking for a batik and came across this pink rose piece that jumped into my hands! I think sometimes the project chooses itself when you start out!
