Morning Sunshine

Caleb is one of the sweetest, happiest dogs I’ve ever known! So, for Caleb’s fabric portrait, I chose to make him look like a little ray of sunshine! The portrait, like Caleb, now resides happily in Dolores’ home.

Construction Info: The original photo was cropped and the hue/saturation manipulated in Adobe Photoshop Elements to give Caleb a sunny yellow glow. The altered image was then printed on Printed Treasures inkjet fabric, backed with Misty Fuse and mounted onto a collage of batiks and Kaffe Fassett fabric. The words (French for “Morning Sunshine”) were also printed on fabric, then dyed with mixed yellow shades of DynaFlow. Many thanks to Mom for her addition of free-motion machine stitching with rayon thread. The piece is backed and bound with batik, and rings were added for hanging.

Cute doggie! :)

There's a picture on my blog of Uncle Greg and my dad when they were little. Thought you might like to see it. :)
