Have you heard of Paper 53? It's an App. I downloaded it onto my new iPad that I got for Christmas. Basically it's an App you use to draw, sketch, and color with your finger. Like finger painting, I guess. Over the weekend I drew this man. I'm not sure where in my mind he came from. He just started appearing under my finger.
Once he was done emerging, I decided he looks a bit like a young version of my father, except without the glasses. Do I dare add glasses to the picture? I don't want to mess it up....we'll see. Today would have been my father's 89th birthday. Happy Birthday, Gee.
I've also discovered that Paper 53 is a wonderful way to practice free motion quilting designs. I'd love to learn to quilt feathers. Need more finger practice!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
