|There's Kali helping me out!|
Sorry - I digress - LOL - with the pattern done I thought I started panting the sky. I got out my Mickey Lawler's book tried painting sky. Now let me tell you, she makes it look so easy and I'm quite sure it is. . . . . but for me it took a few tries to get the sky I wanted right!
The first one was way to heavy and just ridiculously awful!
So I figured out that you need to work the whole length of the fabric across so you don't get the line down the middle. I also added way more water and a bit of purple - 'cause I love purple. The second was a lot better but still too blue in the end and heavy looking. And yes that's me painting fabric in my sewing hole - I wouldn't recommend it since I still managed to get blue paint on things!
Finally the third was much better - I put half and half wet fabric - put a ton of water in the paint and added more purple. It came out great! Then - since it was so great - I cut it up! (That's what quilters do after all - take perfectly good fabric and cut it up only to spend hours sewing it back together!) I still haven't gotten it sewn yet since my Godmother Betty is here for a visit but its on my list of things to do!
