Finished

I can hardly believe that I am finished with my "rust and Patina" piece. I was excited, had nothing pressing ahead of it, so I jumped right in. I was determined to do something different and really challenge myself to move outside my comfort zone with this piece. I think you will be surprised. Not that I think it is great. It may be just a little too, as Terri said, "matchy-matchy" but there are elements that I was happy with.

The big thing was that I did not use any commercial fabrics. I painted fabrics, trying to achieve the feeling of rust and patina and really, I think the fabric turned out beautiful. Knowing what to do with it at that point was the real challenge. I can hardly wait to share it and see what you all have done. Here is a tiny little bit, just to give you a taste.

I'm very impressed at your speedy finish and I'm tantalized by the glimpse ...
