Process Pledge

I have tried to live up to my process pledge (see right hand sidebar) with all my tutorials. Well todays doings are the culmination of about a weeks worth of neuron firings. Remember the dream from a few days ago? When I sketched that idea, I also made this sketch.
 I loved all the lines and it probably isn't clear that I used colored pencils but I did. Then I began to  think of my beloved improvisational quilts and started throwing some of my hand dyed fabrics on the table. Before I knew what I was doing, I was slicing wavy lines through piece after piece.




 I love it. Of course purple and green is my favorite color combination but still... I had this very interestingly mottled light area in one area of one of the fabrics I used and I thought about making a crater filled full moon out of it. In the original sketch I made a note about using discharge paste around the moon like a halo but I decided to try it on a scrap first. You don't need to ask why.
HORRIBLE


This is the aftermath  of my free wheeling rotary cutting frenzy. Tomorrow, the top stitching. Day after that, the embellishments. Stay tuned.
