Then I thought...gee...could I make a video? I have never tried to make /edit video before but decided to give it a try, so, I am hoping that together with my last post you will know what to do and perhaps be inspired to try it yourself.
This is the Rosette I created from the hexagons I am painting in the video.....and it is this rosette pattern that I am sharing with you. Download, print, and make your very own, I only ask that you link back to me when showing off your creations. You can get the file here
Note: this rosette and pattern is comprised of 1" Hexagons....print at "actual" size. If you want to work with a different size you may have to play with printing at the desired percentage
I am not providing instructions for the actual paper piecing part...you can find those all over the Internet as well as some great You Tube videos. Check out my previous post for part 1 of this tutorial
I did it!...my very first video, my first time trying to upload to YouTube.....fingers crossed that it works! The video covers the painting process....hope you find it helpful
I plan to try this technique in a variety of mediums......starting with these.....I have had this lovely set of watercolour pencils sitting in a drawer for years.....will they work?....lets find out
I began by testing the permanency of the colour on fabric. I doodled, laid on colour, activated with the Aloe-Vera Gel, let dry, heat set and then submersed it in water. It worked...the colours stayed put and equally as important, the hand of the fabric remained unchanged
In the image below, the hexagon on the left with just pencil applied....on the right the hexagon after the gel was applied
here they are left to dry
and this is the finished rosette
The process for this is just a little different than with paint, I will attempt to make another video soon.
Merry Christmas! Nina Marie is hosting her "Off the Wall Fridays" so I am linking up there where lots of creative stuff is happening
