Work in progress

Remember that piece of fabric I was speaking about that was just so lovely I didn't want to cut it up? Well, here it is in it's pre-cut glory! It is a piece of fabric from Melody Johnson. I have decided to have a go and cut it up and put it into a small piece. I figure if I don't like it at the end...I'll slice and make postcards. One thing I would like to play with is color composition. But, I don't want to test too many theories on one little piece. I would like to work with great color combos and also light to dark contrasts. But, maybe I'll save the light to dark contrasts for something different.

Here is also a ruff draft of what it will turn into...wish me luck!!!!

P.S. I just had to share a couple of pictures of my son. This was his first halloween out and he just loved dressing as a mouse and trick or treating.

He is too cute! Love that piece of fabric and I can see why you don't want to cut it up! Can't wait to see it transformed into that draft drawing though, it's going to be spectacular!

Usually, I'm not particularly fond of mice. But I wouldn't mind letting this little mouse wander about my house...
Have fun with you fabric!
