As you can see, I went with the the more detailed background – I was worried that the birds would blend in, but 1) I used bright colors and 2) I forget that the dark lines I free motion quilt around them also help with definition, so I’m a happy gal!
I’ve been trying to be more sketchy and free style with my bird shapes – I’m getting there.
EDIT: Note to self – take a look at the pictures you snap along the way, you may remember something you liked! I just scrolled down to the previous post and I love the line of the grass/horizon there than it is in the final product! Too late now! And this was just the shpae of the edge of the fabric…oh well 😦
