Two owls waiting for a bit of colour

            At the Sydney Craft Fair in 2010 I found these Owls designed by Kim Bradley and fell in love with them and the new Inktense pencils.   So far all I have done is visefixed all the pieces down. As it was a bit larger than I remembered so ironing all the big pieces down was a bit tricky on a normal ironing board but after a few hairy moments it was all done. Now all I have to do now is give the Owls character with the Inktense pencils so hopefuly this week thats what I will be doing. Here are some bare pictures
                All the fabrics are all hand dyed , it gives so much structure and depth to the tree and the surrounding background. I just love using these fabrics you can use them in so many designs with surprising results.


  1. These are looking great, Alison. It will be interesting to see how it develops as you work with the pencils. Look forward to seeing your progress.

  2. Thanks Karen. I need to quilt them before I colour, apparently but I might change that instruction
