Prints from Ordinary Objects" I am exploring prints,
textures and colour using everyday objects.
For this quilt I chose to print with an onion.
"It's Time For Colour" will travel to approximately 20
different venues across Canada and be displayed at
Quilt Canada 2015 in Lethbridge Alberta. The 40 quilts
will be auctioned off, with the proceed going to
The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.
|I printed with an onion - black pigment on white cotton.|
|Once the onion print was dry, I used |
Colour Vie pigments to overpaint
with a rainbow of colours.
|I enlarged the onion image, made a silk screen, and|
used it to screen print the large onion image on top
using metallic copper pigment.
