Another Art Group Piece

At our November meeting we made collage style pears. We are finishing these as our next 12" by 12" pieces.

I'm to the quilting stage with mine.

The background is a very light blue batik. I added the words with Inktense watercolor pencils.

I printed out names of varieties of pears in different fonts.

Then I tested different colors, pens and pencils on a scrap of the background.

A dark blue Inktense pencil looked the best to me. I wanted it to be noticeable but not outshine the pears. I haven't decided how I want to quilt it yet.

Your creativity exhausts me. The pear names on the background is such a great idea! And the pears are fab!
