I choose for the color range: orange/brown and rusted fabric combined with some gold lamé.
A picture of my husband and his friend was outlined on freezerpaper and cut into a stencil. I ironed netting from vegetables under the freezer paper (lesson learned: don’t do this with plastic netting!) , printed it onto the piece and printed some gold lettering around it. Echoed the silhouette with paintsticks and outlined with stitching
