When Diane first picked this color to play with, I groaned a little at the thought as I don't tend to use pink much in my work. I was, however, able to overcome my despair, and turn it into an opportunity to explore something I wouldn't ordinarily have done. I rarely wear pink, I do however sometimes choose pink for my nail polish color. Last time I had a pedicure I started looking at the bottles of polish and saw all the cute names they give these colors. I wanted to use these names as a background to highlight some pink polishes, so I typed them up in the computer using different fonts, and printed it out on white background fabric on my husband's extra wide printer. I had my background, and I knew I wanted to show polish dripping down, but wasn't sure how to go about this. I ended up setting up a little stage with a white sheet background and taking several photos of spilling nail polish.
After deciding on the above photo, I took it to photoshop and made it black and white, and then printed it out on my thermofax. After printing it with black paint on a sheer fabric, I just got out my water color pencils and colored it in, easy - peasy! To finish it up, I machine stitched around some of the edges of the bottles and put a pillowcase backing on it.
I do think that using color as our "theme" is going to be interesting and I'm looking forward to the next challange
