You're a doll .... pillow

It's been a while since I made a pillow ... I forgot how to do it ! .... I really did forget .

I felt awkward and dumb and I didn't have a real idea but I knew I wanted to piece old bits of fabric on the pillow .
So I took an old drawing I did months ago.
I printed her on muslin , and after I printed it ..... I went over all the lines again with ink and then I painted it with acrylics and Inktense . My printer is an okay printer but I am never satisfied with the color . It looks washed out ... so I freshen it up .[which takes forever ] ....
then I pieced all the fabrics and added bits of lace and buttons .
I am happy .... I think I am BACK into pillows !

I absolutely adore your style. It's sort of whimsical with a dark edge! I love it!

Do you mind if I link your blog? I use to be Garden Painter Art, but I took the plunge and officially changed my business name. Now, I'm re-doing my blog. I'd love to link yours, if that's okay.

I LOVE this new pillow. Love how you changed the style with the added bits. Maybe it's good to forget sometimes...then you come up with a new way of doing something.
Yay! You are back to making pillows again.
