I’m demonstrating for a day at the upcoming International Ploughing Match, and obviously have to have some hooking to do. Having just completed my last project, that meant I had to get something underway quickly. Hmmmm what to do??? Cheri and Gail came to the rescue. They’re both investigating “graffiti” which is the theme for next year’s annual….and were amazed and excited about the scope and intricacy of this “street art”. Sounded like a great idea to me.
…..something simple and not too big that I can get working on quickly…..this caught my eye. Not the colours, or the text but the style.
…… then out with the pencils to sketch ideas. When I was satisfied with the lettering, I traced it with a sharpie,
….then headed to the Copy Shop and had them double the size to 17″ x 22″
All this involves is taping the pattern to the window, then (having drawn the dimensions on the backing), taping the backing over top, and drawing the pattern directly. It’s not as accurate as my usual method, but great for a simple project. (just don’t save money by buying your green paint tape at a dollar store as I did….it didn’t stick well and kept slipping).
Now my only problem is to go slowly enough that I still have some to finish while hooking at the ploughing match…..or I could begin planning my next project….
