Ugly Hand-painted Fabric BEFORE Cutting...

 These 3 "before" photos should have been included in my most recent post (you'll have to scroll down to the "after" photos; for some reason Blogger isn't allowing me to close up that space)...

I mean, seriously ugly!!...although, believe it or not, I'm using the one at top right in a landscape now.
Go figure!

Used way too much water on this one--
AND transferred the paper-towel pattern
when I blotted the excess water!
This was a "scrunch" experiment...interesting
but impossible to use in a landscape.

Not sure where the "before" of that purple one is

And here are the "after" photos...

These will be used in mini-landscapes (or by my granddaughter)

Love these!

Really glad I finally cut these up!

Have a great weekend!

Ugly Hand-painted Fabric...What to Do?

A few years ago, I tried painting my own sky fabric, then tried painting an earth piece as well. The sky pieces mostly turned out okay (some doubled as water) and were used in these landscape quilts...

...but the earth piece did not turn out well, and it has now joined the rejected sky pieces in a strip-cutting bonanza---because what else do you do with ugly fabric???

And suddenly, they don't look so ugly.

Should have done this ages ago! Have a great weekend.
