Do you have great waves and waterfall photos?

Posted by Linda on 10 August 2016 | 0 Comments


So, over the summer did you go on vacation and take some great waves and waterfalls pictures? Come join Waves & Waterfalls (an online workshop I teach) and make those memories into wallhangings! Learn how to make realistic waterfalls, crashing waves, seafoam and rapids, as well! Come see how you can combine roving, Angelina fiber, bubbled up sheer fabrics, Puff Paint, fabric paint, and painted melted cellophane to really bring those photos to life! Here are my two most recent waves and waterfalls quilts -

Tangle Falls at Jasper National Park - It’s really hard to count the number of waterfalls in this one, but they all combine into one great river crashing over the rocks. If you look carefully, you’ll see two eagles, 4 bears, a wolf, 3 curly horned rams and even a moose!

My most recent “waves” piece is Mont St Michel - a cathedral, monastery, and town just off the northern French coast. Based on my own photo, it was great fun to paint the sky, paint the buildings and reflections, then add a whole lot of complicated quilting and crystals to really make it shine!

In my Waves and Waterfalls class, you do a couple of class projects, then begin your own, inimitable, landscape based on your own photo. I’ll help you incorporate all sorts of fun techniques into making this landscape a true Masterpiece!
