I am trying to make a stormy sky with lightning. The one on the left is commercial sky fabric. The one on the right is a hand dyed fabric. I tried to get a bit more motion in the one to the right. I prefer the angle of the last bit on the left one. I am pretty well out of both background fabrics, although I could dye more of the one on the right or try to get a more storm cloud look by fabric painting. Which one do you prefer or should I try again?
I am thinking of hand sewing angled lines to represent rain slicing down. I also thought of transparent teardrop beads along the bottom. Of course, among my thousands of beads I doubt if there are many transparent teardrops.
This is only one section of my latest wall hanging. I'll show more of it tomorrow.
The scrappy log cabins are resting in a drawer until the next time I feel frustrated.
