Pape's Clematis


ART PROMPT - #6 - Week 3 – Use rubber stamps



Pape's Clematis
After last week's post, I let the ink dry overnight and then heat set it by pressing with an iron.

A little hand embroidery and all that was left to do was the quilting.

I used Isacord thread for all of the quilting.

The background has a simple diagonal grid.

I then stapled the quilt to an artist canvas.

I'm really pleased with the way the way it turned out and especially how well the colours show up.

I've registered for a printmaking workshop, so probably more stamped projects to come.



See you next week,

Terry

NEXT ART PROMPT - #7 – Use glue

HERE'S MY PLAN

One prompt, one project (taking as long as required to finish the project)

It's OK to finish a previously started project (UFO)

Make something creative.

Use any Media.

Blog about the project every Friday.

Pick a prompt for the next week once the project is done.
