The finished design reminds me of the brambles in the Sleeping Beauty story that grow up around the castle during the hundred years everyone is asleep
The finished design reminds me of the brambles in the Sleeping Beauty story that grow up around the castle during the hundred years everyone is asleep:
"But round about the castle there began to grow a hedge of thorns, which every year became higher, and at last grew close up round the castle and all over it, so that there was nothing of it to be seen, not
even the flag upon the roof. But the story of the beautiful sleeping "Briar-rose," for so the princess was named, went about the country, so that from time to time kings' sons came and tried to get through the
thorny hedge into the castle."
So although there are actually no roses (as my husband pointed out), there are plenty of brambley things and pokey points that look as if they'd hurt if you tried to push your way through them en route to the castle. And it does have a lovely rosey red color. Thus the name.
The fabric is based on a section of a botanical drawing I did years ago with a dip pen and a bottle of ink. I scanned the original drawing into Photoshop and put it into repeat, then printed out the repeat, painted it in watercolor, scanned it in again, and quite extensively manipulated it in Photoshop for days, with endless versions and dozens of layers and textures and digital experiments. Yikes! I'm glad I finally settled on one version I kind of liked... I need to step away from the computer!

Beautiful, such lovely texture and gorgeous colour palette! The repeat is amazing, it must have been tricky to work out!
ooh, it's lovely!
Thank you, Holli, Joan & Rhonda! I was so unsure whether or not this was any good... the process & final product was different than the stuff I usually do! Joan, I was thinking my girls need dresses made from this fabric, possibly trimmed with a lovely pink rose coordinate! ;)
There is a magical, fairytale quality to this glorious design, Jennifer! The splashes of golden light peeping through the rosy-hued briars, could easily be of a sunrise reflecting on the enchanted castle's walls!
I love it..................you and I need an outfit made from the pink roses I've submitted and this gorgeous thorned fabric.
I also loved reading about your process..............and I am right there with ya, on all that fiddley stuff it takes to get a version that pleases. But it was worth your effort! Looks great.
this is beautiful jennifer!
