I chose to mix Tulip paints in spray bottles and spray the paint directly onto the white muslin fabric. You can also use a paint brush and put the paint in between the glued areas for a more precise look. The technique I use depends on my mood at the time.
Yesterday I spent the day with these two cutie pies......my grandnieces came to the farm to spend the day with Annylu. It was just the break I needed from the Thread Shed. I was on burn out from preparing exhibit quilts for the September show.
These little ones gave the porch swing a good work out, then took me down to the river to play in the water. Before they left, they asked if they could go out to the chicken house and pick eggs.........yes, they kept me smiling all day. We made enough memories yesterday that I can live on for weeks.
The bed frames behind the Thread Shed are working out beautifully as fencing to support the tall Dinner Plate Dahlias.......I love the rusted patina that is forming on them also.
The Glads will be blooming soon....
The 6 foot tall hollyhocks are growing straight and tall thanks to the new bed frames giving them support.
This old fireplace screen found at a thrift store reminds me of a Peacock.
It works perfect to keep the dogs out of the flowerbed.

Always glad to share.
The patio out back has tenants: 4 new baby birdlings
The mama keeps them covered up, so it is difficult to get a photo of them.
