Today I dove into something that I have not touched in a while....silk painting!
It started because I am still going through the many boxes of *STUFF* that we dug out of the attic and I found some panels I had painted back in 2002! YIKES!
I have also painted hundred's of silk pillows, so many that I will only do them now on the rare occasion!
So when I found these panels I wanted to get out the silk painting supplies, and I wanted to paint a scarf. I have been wearing a lot of different scarves this winter and have been thinking of lighter scarves I could wear for the spring. Silk is perfect!
One problem was that most of my stretcher frames had gone to storage since renovations are starting upstairs tomorrow.....eeekkkk!
So I had to do what I could with what I had!
I am going to have to paint this scarf in sections on a smaller stretcher frame.
Right now this part is drying.
Of course, I was itching to *finish* something, so I took one of my lizard panels and cut the backing off of it. It was a little too short for a regular scarf but could be used as a cowl. I added a Jangles button to hold it closed, after I hemmed it, and taaaddaaaa!!
I think this will be the perfect accessory for spring!
See you tomorrow :)
