Gotta love music. “Jazz Singer.” A fresh piece in the works. Thought I would post the early stage of this piece. Always start with a freshly or slightly older painted background fabric.(I painted this sometime ago.) Cut out paper templates of each section of the design. The skin tones are wonderful vintage fabrics.
Look at the vintage flowers within her bow area. I still have a paper template to the right pinned into place. Each piece of fabric is pinned into place. She will be stitched down with invisible thread, so that she stays in a placement form. I’ll use these Valdani threads below for skin tone. I love variegated threads that add a cool contrast along with texture. I really love working with vintage fabrics. I’m looking forward to getting her on my frame, let the stitching fun begin!
