These elements get rearranged multiple times til I am happy with the arrangement.
The next step... one by one.. remove the second and third layers and 'glue' them to fabric using matte medium . You notice the edges of tissue start to become transparent when the matte medium is added to the back side. This is a delicate process that usually involved a fine pin separating the layers before medium is added to the fabric and tissue applied atop medium.
I then used an apricot color Prismacolor pencil to scribble texture here and there. Now to let things really dry. I can heat set the pencil marks but definitely NOT the areas with matte medium.
Click on Images for enlarged view. Some subdued background stenciling will be added in open areas when all is dry and then quilting will be yet later! Happy Quilting all!
