Finally, something new to post. I finished another page in my experimental journal…I’m almost finished with it, so, I need to start thinking about another journal. This one was an old craft book from the 70’s. I usually start by putting gesso on the pages…that’s what I did on this spread. I used Caran d’Ache crayons….acrylic inks, India inks and acrylic paint. I also used some collage pieces cut from a vintage shorthand instruction book. The quote says: “Yesterday we were, and today we are!”-Kahlil Gibran.
Here are some of the embroidery pieces I have finished in the last two weeks. The bird, I found over at the floss box dot com. The fish is a pattern from Jenny Hart’s Sublime Stitching...The duck is an Aunt Martha’s transfer. The others are my sketches. Then I used a blue ink Sulky iron-on transfer pen to trace over the sketches and then ironed the designs on the fabric. I found the pen on Ebay.
