Ahhhh Cooler Weather

Today we are near 80. So much better than yesterday's 99 degrees. We may even get some rain this afternoon. I sure hope so. Here's what I did yesterday. I painted this vase of flowers on a fabric/paper background. I'm not so sure I like the colors of paint I used on this background color. What do you think?

And last evening I was working on this. I am just to the point where I need to start shaping the bottom of the pouch. Then bind off and throw in the washer to felt.

  2. Hey Terri, I see "acrylic painted vase of flowers" when I hover over the top image & "knitted pouch" over the second - so it's in there!!

    I like your painting a lot!

  3. Well, the background is a beautiful color. If you want it monochromatic, this is it.

    For myself, I always like a little more contrast. I would think that background color will be very useful to try out different foregrounds.

  4. Gosh Terri I really like it. Maybe if you bordered it with a fun black and white print or something it may make it pop a little more?

  5. Two things I've been meaning to learn: knitting in the round and felting. Let us see the bag after it's felted.
    I love the background for the flowers.

  6. Terri,

    My mom just emailed me to tell you that you need to enable seeing alt text in images through your internet options. I just posted the info on my blog as a PS to that post. I hope it helps.

  9. I like the background; it's peaceful. I might have liked a complimentary color for the flowers a bit better. Just a thought.
