German Ostsee

Another new design by Martina Weber (Chatelaine Designs)....my little beginning on this one.
Part 1 WIP(a)

I purchased a large (very, very large!) piece of 28 count Ice Blue Cashel linen for this one. The cut piece is 37" x 37"!! Huge....anyway I decided to try again with the paints. I had purchased a spray bottle of paint at A. C. Moore (turquoise) and gave it a try....

In the picture you can see where I folded the fabric at the top. The top color is the Ice Blue and the lower portion is where I sprayed the center portion with the turquoise over the blue. I did try to add a few clouds, but they have not shown up very well. May have to try again after I finish stitching the center portion. I'll probably use a stencil brush to try and apply those. :)
