I finished lesson one of the Fertile Earth class. This was inspired by a kiwi (see below). The background was supposed to be stamped, but my stamping didn't really work out well for my kiwi, so it was back to the wood-burning tool to cut some "leaves" and swirls and those made up my background. I used Misty Fuse to adhere the cuttings to the background fabric and meant to put some tulle on top of it before plopping the kiwi on, but forgot the tulle. This isn't a mistake I want to make again. All the lint, threads and everything else then sticks to the Misty Fuse. I was constantly picking these off - they made it look dirty. Anyway, this was fun and now we are on to week 2. The inspiration? Flowers! Oh, how will I ever choose just one flower to be inspired by?
