The Project Runway circle journal is now underway, and this is my entry for the first CJ I have received.
It comes from Kathy in Ireland, and her chosen Project Runway challenge was the one from season 4 where they could use only denim and white cotton to make an outfit for Levi Strauss.
I've used denim from a favourite, but now retired, pair of jeans to make the wings of my very own "stonewashed angel" - and the angel herself is an inkjet image transfer of one of my graveyard photos onto fabric from one of Connor's old white t-shirts, which he had tie dyed so it has a faint blue pattern showing through.
Other nods to the theme are the little Levi-style tab in the title:
And the yellow stitching and halo of antique copper eyelets in place of the rivets on a pair of jeans:
I really like how the image transfer came out, soft and dreamy.
And I also love the happy accident of how the dark spots in the salt background (made in response to a Marit's Summer Camp prompt) worked their way through the acrylic paint that I used to stamp the title, giving it a really great texture....almost like the lichen patterns you so often see on stone angels. Perfect!
Isn't it great when things work out just right all by themselves.
