Monday, Monday

First........
Don't forget to get counted for my "big give-away" by commenting HERE!

It's Design Wall Monday, again and I've been cleaning for the give-away but I did get in some design work for a mug rug that I'll be giving away one of these days.




I love making silhouettes.
Can you tell it's a dog??

Next, I did a silhouette of "The Duke" John Wayne.
On this particular one, I worked from the bottom up.

Remember, I'm using my favorite fabric adhesive, Steam-a-Seam, which
 I should have bought stock in.....LOL

It's easy cutting the tiny pieces because I using small scissors.
The dark handle scissors at the bottom 4th from the left, is my favorite but I'll use any of the smaller one at any given time.

I also use straight pins and tweezers to aid in placement.

I know this will be hard to believe but working on projects like this is therapeutic to me. I can't think of anything but what I'm working on and when I get my favorite radio station going, well it doesn't get any better than that. Plus, it's just plane fun!!

So far "The Duke" measures about 9 by 11 inches. I don't know if I'll add a border. This is one of those times I'll need to think about it.
All fabrics came from my stash. I haven't shopped for fabric is months. I can't believe that myself but it's true.

Make sure to pop over to Judy's to see what everyone else is doing.

I had a hard time seeing a dog until I saw it with the red. My favorite dog was an Eskie. I wonder what it would look like in reverse...black background with a white dog? Hmmm, I might have to try that. John is looking pretty dapper! I've missed your work...glad to see you posting again.

You are so GOOD! How do you find the patterns, or do you make them yourself. I am amazed.

Ramona said...

Wow! It must be so much fun to watch your silhouettes grow and become what you have in mind. They are wonderful! And I could not see the dog until you pointed it out. So cool!

Sue Daurio said...

That is amazing! You have really done an incredible likeness to the great man.

I cannot visualize silhouettes until someone else makes them and then they just jump off the page. I was given an eagle's head silhouette pattern once and really enjoyed putting it together but I would never have been able to draw it out myself. Great going.

Un beso

Love your silhouettes!

Didn't see the dog at first. I saw a little girl with a ponytail holding a pie high over her head handing it to (grand)mother. That was before the red was added. I still am having a hard time holding the dog in my mind. Reminds me of the drawing that is either a vase or two women looking at each other. It keeps bouncing between the two. Good Work.

I'm sorry, but I don´t see the dog. I think I'm blind, because as I read the comments to see the others him yes! But the Duke is perfect! You amaze me again and again with your amazing ​​talent.
Greeting Guilitta

Thanks
