A friend of mine in the RAFA group and our small QA group is moving away - to Texas. I haven't gotten to know her all that well, but she asked each of us in the small QA group to make a page for a book she is compiling - to remind her of us. I struggled with this - not knowing her all that well, not being able to interpret what I wanted in fabric...........and missing her good-bye party last Thursday. I finally finished today (the 3rd attempt) and I like it best. It says what I want her to know about me.
which I fused to a sheet of stiff peltex.
The paper is gorgeous and references
happy moments of friends and family.
I told her first of all that purple is my favorite
color - referenced by the color of the sheet
and of the pen I used to write my good-bye.
I said that I was a trained musician - piano. I made the treble clef sign by making a stencil and then sponging copper lumiere paint onto an orange butterfly fabric. (That fabric was to be my initial piece or page, but it just didn't work.
