The latest challenge at Creative Tuesdays is Red Apple(s). I have gone the fabric route for this one.
The yellow background (which is made up from a lot of little squares) and the apple are hand painted. It was interesting to feel the difference between sewing on hand painted fabric and manufactured fabric. On manufactured fabric it is a lot smoother and easier to manipulate and the stitches seem to blend in more.
I then had a light bulb moment of childhood and stamping with fruit and veg, so fished out some apples to use as stamps. The three on yellow fabric I think I may well make into a mug rug or something. All in all I had a fun morning yesterday playing with my fabric paints and getting messy.
There will be lots of other red apples to make your mouth water over on the CT blog.
