But this was too stark for me, so I hand stitched, with twisted chain stitch in brown and copper, and added smaller pear beads. Better!
I made a quick ATC from the of cuts as I owe an ATC to Domi in France. I changed the orientation this time.
and finally when I painted the fabric I couldn't find a piece of drop paper to protect the kitchen table so grabbed some foil and hen left it on here to dry on the radiator. When I peeled it off the foil was painted too and so I couldn't resist, I thought the crinkled foil would be good for the outback. I added some copper acrylic for a bit of interest. Hand stitches, twisted chain again, and pearl beads. It isn't wonky in real life, I will rephotograph tomorrow as the light is so poor, the top of this one is much blacker in real life, it is so hard to photograph metallics. I am going to give Sandy, my Partner for January her pick and then I am going to give away one of the cards in a lottery to one of the people who commented on my last post, to say thank you. Watch out for who in the next few days.
So I hope this is te start of me being focused, I am going to work on my "body" of work still, and make as though I am going to exhibit, and then when it is done ( let's hope!!!) I may find somewhere to exhibit it. Thanks again to all those who cared enough to comment.
Love Carol T
