Painted Magnolia Leaves

I showed my leaf from Catherine Jordan’s class, Nature’s Palette, to members of my Fiber Guild last month and this month they are going to try it.

After I got the correct acrylic paint (do not use acrylic textile paint on anything other than fabric), I painted Magnolia leaves for members of the Needlework and Fiber Guild of Media. Much better.

I am not handing out Catherine’s instructions because they are not an EGA chapter and they don’t need to make it reversible. I am giving them verbal instructions, a pattern I worked up, a pin, needle, gold thread, and a painted leaf.

I’m quite happy with how the leaves turned out! My husband’s favorite is the large one on the top center row.

We meet at the Media Arts Council on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm. So, this month we meet on election night, November 8. Be sure to vote first and join us for something fun. If you use any kind of fiber, then you will find this an interesting mix of artists sharing, learning, and inspiring each other.
