I am excited about this new work and even had some fabrics from my stash pulled for it but for some reason just wasn't ready to start on it yet. Found out the reason was that I needed to add a few more fabrics for the range of color that I was thinking about.
An errand run and a stop at Turquoise Threads during the errands was the perfect solution. Some of the new line from Free Spirit fabrics by Tim Holtz (and a few batiks for good measure) was just the extra texture and color I was needing. I also like that I will have some text on the piece when finished as that adds another layer of texture. I love that graffiti look and texture on pieces that I want to have an aged look.
If you want to see all the fabrics that Free Spirit has right now you can go to their Free Spirit website.
What have you been working on and are you excited or stuck in the design process?
