On this sunny week at the Fair of Masters, I wanted to tell you how to make a poster in the technique of contour quilting. The poster is sunny, bright and original.

The very first thing I started with – it picked up the right phrase: “You are my sunshine”, which means “you are my sun”.

The idea of this poster came to me by accident: I saw this phrase on the Internet, only there it was cut from a tree. I transferred the phrase with a pencil to watercolor paper, although, of course, it is more convenient to download the appropriate expression and print it on thick paper. Then I cut out all the words and stuck them on a dense primed cardboard.

And here the most painstaking work begins: take the words along the contour of a thin strip of paper. The result in the photo above. Since the phrase itself is cut out of thick paper, it is easier and faster to take out each letter.

When I decided to make the poster brighter and more spacious. For this, I cut flowers and leaves from colored paper and pasted them around words.

Next, I began to trace each flower and leaf with strips of paper. In empty places – strips of colored paper rolled into rolls.

One of the most particular questions: what glue I use. I use conventional PVA glue. A small note: it is better to buy glue in building stores, where the jar will be written that the PVA is designed to work with paper. Such glue will be thick enough, will not dry quickly, and if you work carefully, then the trace of the glue will not be visible.
