Back in 2010 our guild proposed a challenge called “I’m So Blue”. It had to include the color blue and also have some form of fabric embellishment.
Unusually for me, I had my idea MONTHS before the due date, and it came from the British Sit-Com, “As time Goes By”. In that show there is a picture on the wall that has a dresser with a single flower in a vase and I had always been drawn to it.
I started out by pulling blue scraps and placing them around a piece of lightweight fusible interfacing…..
I did my usual internet research and came up with an interesting looking chest to use…..
….and also found this flower design…..
I added a vase and flipped the flower to one side….
After everything was cut out and fused down, it was time to add the embellishment. I wanted the chest to have an antique look so decided to sponge paint a bit of color…..
Since I was playing with paint, I also added a bit of stenciling (you can see it at the top of the above photo).
After adding a border and a few more details, I declared that “As Blue Goes By” was finished…..
But this was not the end to the “I’m So Blue” challenge…..come back tomorrow for the next entry!!!
