Just a quickie to vent my frustrations. I have been trying for two days to think of a stupendous way in which to portray my three beautiful pussy cats on quilts. My first idea was to do caricatures of them in silly poses and put them on bright backgrounds. So I have been chasing the cats around with the camera hoping for something funny to happen. Of course it did not.
Then I thought I'd get serious and terribly clever. I though that I would print a photo of the cats onto cotton which I had 'water coloured' in my art programme and simply embroider onto that giving a cool half painted/half embroidered look. However that failed too. So now I think I'll go back to my first plan of the caricature.
You see I have these smashing ideas but I can't follow them through as I'm not artistic enough. That's why I nicked cousin Lynne's sketch of Livvie for my last quilt as I'd never have been able to do the initial sketch in the first place! So frustrating. So, I shall persevere with the caricature idea as I usually find that the simplest ideas are the best. :0)
I shall let you know of any design breakthroughs as they happen.
Oh and by the way, I know there are many lurkers out there as my profile has had 175 views. So how come none of you leave me a comment? I'd really love it if you did as I'd love to know who's reading me. :0)
