Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
Before the end of 2016, I found a call for entry for a juried show that I thought would be a great challenge.
I am finishing up my entry, but I will share some pictures with you of the piece in progress:
If you've been following my blog as of late, you know that I've been working with monoprinted stabilizer.
If you're new, (Welcome!) you can read about it here.
In the pics above, you can see I'm using four different prints, but putting them all together for the background. The picture on the left also shows some tea-dyed Cut-Away Plus
that I sliced into strips to add a woven element.
I chose the same color Sulky cotton thread in two different weights for the accent stitching. The lighter, 30wt thread, I used in my machine and the 12wt is for hand stitching later.
The picture on the right shows the background after I used another piece of Cut-Away Plus for the backing and sewed it rst. All of the raw edges are gone and it is ready for more assembly.
Come back soon, to see how the rest of the piece came together!
If this is your first time visiting my site, welcome! I hope you will take a stroll and peruse the pages.
If you've been here more than once, what do you think?
I spent some time in between Christmas and New Year's day,
trying to make the site cleaner, crisper and more effecient.
I wanted something fresh and different to match my anticipation for what 2017 holds.
It's true, that we never know what will happen in the future, and although I know there will be challenges, I am honestly looking forward to working on some of my new artistic and professional goals.
I've got some surprises in store and I can't wait to let you know all about them, so be sure you bookmark my site, or better yet, subscribe (down below), so you won't miss any of the exciting news!
In the mean time, stay busy creating! :)
