Ronna, Holly and I are having our annual Art Sale this Saturday in lovely Dunvegan, Ontario (an hour east of Ottawa, an hour west of Montreal, or an hour up from the border at Cornwall!) Come join us for great art and tasty baking!
Here's a peak at what I've been up to...
It's my lovely chicken, Georgiana! I saw the idea for this technique in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. First I did a pencil sketch, which I then used as the basis for a pen-and-ink drawing on translucent vellum. When the ink was dry, I put on two coats of polymer medium, painted it with thinned acrylics, re-inked some spots, then sewed it to the backing with embroidery floss. The backing is needle-felted wool on felt fabric. I used glass beads for the hanging loops. This one measures about 5" x 5." I've had a lot of fun doing these!
If you're in the area next Saturday, please drop by our sale. Do a little Christmas shopping and enjoy our home-baked offerings.
