Tree Tops is Finished!
One of the things I've done on this since last posting it was to create more contrast in the trees. I made the right side shadows on the trunks darker. I also used a white oil pastel and made the left sides of the trunks brighter. I then took an olive green oil pastel and added mossy areas to the trunks. The trees seem to pop more from the background and I like that better.
This has been a great experiment, and I gained confidence in using the fabric markers and oil pastels. I would never had tried it without reading The Art of Landscape Quilting by Zieman and Sewell. I guess I'm ready for their next project.
Or maybe I need to start making my Ghastly project for the Ghastlies Blog Hop!
You know what to do... Keep stitchin' for the ones you love!
