A Fabulous Spoonflower Print

For a few weeks I’ve been playing around with acrylic paints, mostly experimenting with texture and now style as well.  I showed you some of my scratch paintings that I did mostly to use as backgrounds and collage papers.  Here’s what I did with the green scratch painting that I sent to Spoonflower.

 

It’s the background in a digital collage I did. I used it with a photograph I took in a friend’s yard in Cummaquid, MA.

I love it and had it done to use as a wholecloth quilted piece. It’s a yard wide and I’ll put it together with some eco felt and do some free motion stitching.  It’s printed on a quality organic, cotton sateen and, although what you see here is actually my photograph, I couldn’t be happier with the job Spoonflower did.

Thanks to those who voted for my design – I got a lot of votes but didn’t win.  It was fun to throw my hand in though.
