I ironed it on to a soft piece of rayon lawn hoping for a softer hand. No luck. It was a stiff as a board. No needle would go happily through that surface plus
I wasn't that fond of the visual impact. A bit to harsh for the lush landscape I am aiming to create.
Next I tried some silk chiffon painted with thinned down Dye-Na-Flo paints. I laid them out wet with ridges in them to get the paint to dry in streaks.
Success. This was the soft sky I was looking for PLUS the painted edges had wicked some paint so I had a thin line of darker color on the edges. You can really see that on the lavender piece.
I used the really large piece of indigo dyed silk chiffon for the multiple layers of mountains starting with light ones in the background to darker in the foreground.
Then I inserted some LWI acid dyed chiffon in dark green for trees and a shibori dyed piece of silk chiffon for the grasses in the foreground.
Right now it looks like a bunch of scraps of fabric but the Madeira Lana wool thread will bring this piece to life. Now I need to start!!!!
