Before bed, I felt compelled to paint. I love when I just have to do something. So often when that hits, I make something quite ugly, but this time, I kind of like it. I'm not sure what the fabric is. It started out white and satiny. I used lumieres i many colors to color block the piece. I will have to do a second coat tomorrow, but I just wanted to share with you tonight. It's very shimmery and very colorful.
I took closeup pics so you could see the texture on this. Isn't it amazing? I overlapped the colors and where that happened, the texture is so deep. Here, I used Gold Pink Halo, Citrine, and Bronze. I also used a burgundy on the fabric, but it doesn't show in this picture.
I think I'm going to use some for collage work. I want to stamp on it. I see flowers in it, I see flourishes. There are lots of images I can see being used with this fabric. And I have a lot of it, so I might have to cover a journal with some as well.
Okay, it's past 1 am and I must get my tired butt to bed. Good night!
