Coat of Arms
|Coat of Arms|
During our NOFA fall retreat, we played around with staining and scorching fabric, see here, so I'm using this little 8" x 8" piece to play with.
After a little experimenting with different threads and even fine wool, I chose a metallic thread to co-ordinate with the scorched areas on my sample.
I tried stitching on the cotton only and did not care for the look I was getting.
In the end, I added batting and a back and basically hand quilted the piece.
I really like the texture I got from crisscrossing the stitches.
Here it is blocked and sprayed with lots of water.
And a close-up of the criss-crossing.
I'm not sure how successful this is and also not sure what to do with it.
Placing it in an 8” x 8” frame doesn't do much.
Win some, lose some!
I'm leaving the edges unfinished for now, it may get added to another project in due time.
Linking to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.
See you next time,
NEXT PROMPT - #18 – Use stencils
HERE'S MY “ART PROMPT” PLAN
One prompt, one project (taking as long as required to finish the project)
It's OK to finish or use a previously started project (UFO) as a starting point.
Make something creative.
Use any Media.
Blog about the project.
Pick another prompt once the project is done.
