Here is my latest project an Alpaca wall hanging. The image of the 2 Alpacas was kindly donated by a friend. The original image actually had these 2 Alpacas in front of a herd of other Alpacas. My friend Sue from Long Island was kind enough to ask her daughter who knows Photoshop inside and out to do some editing to take the 2 Alpacas out from the herd and then place them against a more neutral background. I then sent out the image to Spoonflower to get it printed to Kona cotton fabric. I used Kaufman's mist fusion in onyx for the narrow border and a gray Stonehenge for the large border.
Now I'm going to do a bunch of thread painting in the main image to define the Alpaca's features and add some texture to their fur. I then plan to add some variation of colour to the grass so it doesn't look so much like a golf green. Also I will add some definition to some of the trees in the background.
For the border I'm still testing out some ideas for a pattern that will first be quilted. Then I plan to bring out that quilting with some couching using some Alpaca yarn that I got a few weeks ago. Here is the yarn that I got.
I don't have a lot of time for this project since my deadline to get this one finished is next week Tuesday. I'm not sure if I will make it but this isn't a big wall hanging measuring at 28" by 32". I'll keep you posted.
