"Do not be afraid to go out on a limb. That is where the fruit is." anonymous
The trees with the first phase of stitching with some weeds & grasses stitched as well.
A closer view and you can see the stamped words on the sheer fabric that has become a tree trunk.
Several spools of thread later and I'm almost done with the trees. Just need some darker and lighter accent
stitching. I have decided to leave them bare of leaves--or naked if you prefer. I kind of like the sculptural quality of naked trees in late fall.
I am also working on a felted piece that will be embroidered and beaded then added to a painted/collaged canvas. Will show photos later.
Right now I'm waiting on some setacolor paints to dry. I spent a couple hours today doing some sun printing on silk, using setacolor paints. I've got my fingers crossed that the huge piece I painted will turn out pretty good. I'm hoping to use it as a whole cloth quilt. We'll see.....
Will keep you posted. Until then...live your life creatively~
