Below is "Steady Your World." It's 8ish by 10ish and mounted on an 11x14 piece of mat board.
It's got all my favorite things: an old key, hand embroidery, square sequins, a dangly item, magazine clippings, free motion quilting, frayed edges and a muddy color scheme.
I mounted these pieces on felt. I don't think I'll do that again. Of course, I used craft felt which is not the highest quality product. Wool felt would certainly be a better choice. The felt I used shed everywhere and stretched unpredictably. That's ok. I like wonky.
Below is "Boing" after the word on the smashed bottle cap that I found at a construction site. I guess Boing is a popular drink with the Hispanic contractors. I'll have to stop buy a Mexican grocery and try some!
Also 8ish by 10ish and mounted on an 11x14 piece of mat board. It's really wonky... so I can't say the perspective is completely off in this photo, but I think the color is a bit dull.
I'm debating about adding some mixed media elements to long skinny. The quilting is done and I've even got it squared up. I must add stems to the flowers and then I will have to decide if it's done or not. Or, more accurately, can it be salvaged by adding a bit more or should I just call it done and put on a binding?
These are excellent!
Deborah, love these pieces. They are so playful. I love the simplicity yet elegence of your work.
Deborah, the pieces you have made in this post and in the last one are just so beautiful. I think I might have to put aside my WIP for the day to get some of these done.
