Southern Magnolia

A couple weeks ago I started this small sample of a ‘southern magnolia’ to see if it would work for my real challenge quilt and I’m so glad I did. So many people commented on the beauty of the background fabric. I took that as a sign that my magnolia didn’t have the limelight it needed.  So I tried to tone down that beautiful watercolor fabric with …

… crayons.

The colors turned it more green but after I heat set them …

… there wasn’t much green left. I decided the “Applebee's” crayon didn’t soak into the fabric. So I used the Kodak crayons and pressed harder and colored the leaves around the magnolia. That seemed to work. Now I’m wondering what ‘Crayola’ brand crayons would have done.

Maybe I can work some more on this piece yet. Somehow I need that flower to get more attention!
