Making progress! I've finished sewing all the rows of my horse fabric. I happy with the layout and will use oil pastels or pencils to color in areas that may need a 'touch' up or two once the overlay fabric is in place.
I have my paper overlay on top of the fabric in this picture.
And yep, I'll be adding some beading for the mane...
And beads for the tail...although, it's hard to see in this picture!
Now to decide on the background fabric. As you saw in my previous post, I'm playing with stamping on fabric. I want to have letters and/or words on the background but this horse is rather large (15"x13") and the piece can only be 16" x 20"...sooooooo Not sure how much lettering I'll be able to use. Ugo has letters/words in most of his work.
So off to look at some fabric for piecing the background!
