Banishing the Design Doldrums
However, I forgot the photos and don't like the sketches I have done for the concepts. So...what to do. Well, since I'm in Montana farm country, the land of rusty bits, I decided I would rust dye some fabric for the ground for one of the ideas I had.
And...I made a little piece for the Fast Friday Fabric Challenge. I'm late on that too...no surprise, but I expect to finish this for tomorrow. I was going to do a school of fish based on a sketch I did for Elizabeth Barton's Quilt University class, "Inspired to Design." But, since Ann Ruthsdottir already showed her piece based on the school of fish, I decided to do something else.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to put a pale moon in the upper corner or not. My mom is not a person inclined to use yellow, so the only thing I could find to audition the color was a piece of yellow paper. I'm thinking the edges should be not as sharp, and the color paler.
What do you think?
I think sometimes diving in helps break the design block... at least I'm hoping it does as I really have to get these fingers flying.
