As the exhibition is now only a scary 4 weeks away on Saturday, Oops I wish I hadn't checked that!! I thought I'd better step things up a bit and stop procrastinating.
I've finally got the flyers ready for printing, which always takes me ages as I do it all on PS, which is not designed for DTP work, so doesn't have the nice text boxes all in line etc.
Anyway here they are. We're using our group name for the first time, so that's a bit exciting. It was derived from the area we live in and as we all work for the FC as well, we thought it had a nice ring to it.
An now on to the more difficult stuff, the work!!
I managed to sort out the size of the hay bales (so kindly supplied by Deidre) that I was working on in the this post. I managed to reduce them in size and then duplicated the layer twice so as to get a stretch across the width of the image. I finally put a pallet knife filter on them to give them a painterly effect. I put a frame of a bluebell wood around it to hold the image in.
This one and the poppy image will be professionally printed into a canvas mount, that's the plan anyway!
And now to the quilt. This is what I have so far, and as a rank amateur as far as quilting is concerned, I have to admit that all the different elements have been stuck down with Bondaweb, but my excuse is that I didn't want them to stand proud as I wanted to save that for the poppy image. I haven't attached the wadding yet, and my question is, if I stitch the quilt lines straight through Bondawebbed pieces, will I dislodge them? And also how much quilting should I do on this piece?
Decisions, decisions I just hate it!!
Needless to say I'm procrastinating again.
