No White Fabric!

So, I really loved the hand-quilted piece I made, but I have a hard time not “decorating” white fabric. So I just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Here is the original piece:

Here it is after I wet it, painted it with yellow Setacolor , dropped some leaves on it, sprayed emerald Setacolor on it, let it dry in the sun, rolled titanium white acrylic onto it, then rubbed some green Shiva Painstik into the heart and feather areas:

And here’s a close-up:

Some people might think I ruined it, but I’m actually pretty pleased with it!

I don't think you ruined it at all. I love the results when painting over a quilted surface. The additional textures that pop out are so wonderful.

I love the extra dimension the color adds. Good choice!

What a wonderful blog you have here. I found you through the fact that you just marked me as a flickr contact. How cool is that! You looked at my photos, now I am visiting your blog. I love what you are doing and I will be back often. Stop by and pay me a visit too when you get the chance. Oh and painting over an already quilted surface - been there done that - and it turns out pretty cool!
