So, as I was sitting and beading my bird....I happened to see my beaded leaf....and I remembered to bring with me a piece of rust fabric I made about five years ago! And guess what! This background will be perfect for the leaf!
I'm not going to leave the areas white but will be over dyeing with greens/blue.
Joan and I were shopping this past summer and she noticed a blouse that had the perfect colors for a background!
I took this picture and I think if I can perhaps tray dye I might get some of the same colors or at least close to the same colors. I know the rust will show through and hope the leaf will work well with this background....although, the lone leaf may look lonely! Will I have to make more than one!! Yikes! Let's hope not.....
