But this new piece that I started 2 days ago has grabbed hold and I'm loving the 'play'. I am going to name it Lake Huron Sunset.
I have loved the original photo (mine) and wondered if I would ever get 'round to it'.
... so, a photo, printed in b&w onto a strip of fusible interfacing ironed onto a piece of crumpled brown paper ... then glued to a piece of printer paper ... print ! ... then edges of brown paper artfully torn and glued to another piece of crumpled brown paper, below ...
|... trying to emphasize the glowing sun through the cedar tree with hand stitching ;)|
some machine embroidery started in the grey sky with grey thread in a half-moon pattern (almost rising;))
|... now fused to a square of muslin, and all pinned to a larger piece of canvas, |
that will be stretched over a frame I already have on hand !
|... finished size will be approx. 16"x20"|
