Paisley Face

Paisley Face

Its a paisley... and its a face so I named it Paisley Face! This is an ATC that I made today. I wanted to make something fast and instead worked on this off and on all day. I thought an ATC would fun. I haven't made one of these in a long time. I marked a piece of muslin 3 1/2 X 2 1/2. I drew the paisley and in the curve I "saw" a face. It came out better than I thought it would and was disappointed that I did it on plain muslin. I tried to bead the background but I didn't like the way it looked. So I tried to stitch the background and didn't like that either. So, out came the paint. This is Lumiere by Jacquard. The color is halo violet gold. Since I had the paint out I painted more muslin pieces to make more ATC's. I don't know if the face will work on the painted muslin but I will try. I need to get a new black marker. Her "mascara" is on a bit thick. I don't know why the marker came out like that. I'm going to have to get in the habit of marking a scrap fabric before I draw on the face.

This is so beautiful and unique! How did you apply the Lumiere? I just bought some and want to play with it.
