Textile Art

I thought I would share this finished piece with you today. It has been a WIP for over a year and I'm thrilled that it's finally finished and framed. I quite like having a few projects on the go all at once, that way, I never get bored with any of them! 


Not my usual choice of colours at all but I am thrilled with how it turned out, such bright, summery colours and makes me excited to think that hopefully, spring weather is just around the corner.


All of the hand sewing and beading has kept my busy during some long winter evenings. It's quite nice to be able to do something creative whilst catching up some favourite TV programmes.



All I need to do now is find somewhere to hang it which might be quite a challenge, this colour scheme clashes with pretty much everything in my house!!!

Well even though I never use pink anywhere I would make an exception for such a stunning work of art AND .....It would look lovely in any room because everywhere is neutral ;-).

This really is so beautiful with such delicate, detailed stitching. I'm going back for another look.

Hugs

It was light modelling paste through a stencil onto silk (technique I picked up from Beryl Taylor) then painted with Dye-Na-Flo and highlighted with Inktense pencils.
