Well, I MAY have found a solution to my spotty dilemma! I have painted Evolon with Setacolor ultramarine blue and am now using Lumiere gold on top and I THINK I may have a winner. The blue is rich and deep enough and the gold, subtle enough so that it appears it will not be too garish. I need to do more thread painting on my big leaf before I put the spots on so I shall keep cutting and painting and sewing and a picture or two shall follow .
It is a stunning day. I am feeling better and I am off shortly to Dundas to see Anita Zobens for a lot of new, glorious colours of 30 wt Superior thread to continue my Smoke Tree Leaves. Did I ever mention what a colour junkie I am ? This is shaping up to be a good day. Lucky me!!
