Adam's Yve St. Laurent
by Bonnie Lyn McCaffery
The title of this piece is a play on words. This is Adam’s Eve for she appears to be naked in a garden. The reference to Yves St. Laurent is because she has created a designer’s ensemble with what she had available in the garden of Eden. This should be a lesson to all of us that we can make do (and quite nicely I must add) with what we have available to us. All it requires is a little creative thinking on our part.
Believe it or not, YOU CAN DO THIS TOO! Learn how to paint faces on fabric. I taught a test workshop to my guild and it was amazing to see these ladies (who did not believe they could do this) were able to successfully learn how to do it. The painted face can then be embellished (the "Fantasy Fabric" way) with cut shapes for hair and added objects (flowers, threads, etc.) captured under a sheer layer of tulle. Once you experience this, you will be able to paint your grandchildren, friends, parents, and children and create a personal quilt just for them.
Take a look at some of the "Painted Face" test workshop STUDENTS work.
