It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.

I wasn't going to do this challenge, but then I had a really fun idea to make Doctor Who's Van Gogh Exploding Tardis painting with fabric scraps.  If you aren't familiar with Doctor Who, you can see the original image here.  After 3 or 4 crafting marathons (totaling about 15 hours), I give you the mini Exploding Tardis!

The first photo is taken from a bit of a distance so you get the whole picture instead of the individual bits of fabric.


And now, some in progress photos!  Of course, working with bits of fabric I had to do it in layers, so I studied the painting to figure out what would go first and layer up from there.






And one for scale.  It's about 3" x 2".


And a closeup to see the details.  Lots and lots of little bits of fabric.  Eventually, I was just seeing blobs of color and had to ask my husband to check my work.  Kind of like when you say a word over and over and it stops making sense, except with swirly colors.

Thanks!  Honestly at different times in the project, I thought, "Wow, this is great!" followed by, "Wow.  This is crap.  What am I doing?"  Nice to hear someone liked it!

Brilliant!!!  Shocked  I can't believe it's so tiny!  I would've gone cross-eyes after just a couple hours.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Man, this is just fantastic.  I can't imagine working with all those little pieces, let alone ending up with it looking like anything at all.
