Willow Pillow

It's spring and the trees are in full flower.
I wanted to capture the cool, damp, dusky spring haze by the river and print it onto fabric.  I wanted a rustic, primitive print, just a suggestion, really.   Turned into a rustic, primitive pillow.
This was a print photo, scanned into the computer in order to print onto fabric.  The fabric is a grainy unbleached muslin and the "frame" and lettering  are drawn with black Sharpie.
The print is an iron-on transfer.

The willows are disappearing, one by one, victims of their own shallow root systems and decades of living in the pathway of violent riverfront thunderstorms.

  1. This is a really cool idea Deb! I have never tried to do the photo onto fabric thing, but this makes me want to try it!
