Lisa’s exquilt design

‘ve been thinking all day about how i wnt it to look. i’m not going to make it 50″ square. it’s too big. i’m thinking 36″, a yard.

and i definitely like the idea of a border of heavy canvas.

i’ve looked up the dharma site on painting dye on cotton, and i’ve figured out how to do the salt technique i want.

i’m envisioning a big balled-up length of canvas, 4×6 ft maybe, wadded up and tied and all done in with color. and then i’ll let it set and then toss it in the washing machine, and then stretch it and coat it out with some sort of clear gesso like substance.

maybe i’ll stitch the collage to the background canvas.
