...and finally...for this piece anyway.

Last time I was waiting for inspiration to strike. It did in that curved horizon reminded me of a view I see often on a road that takes me out of the city to the coast where I live. It is semi rural with nice views, but this one particular scene always catches my eye and if there was somewhere to stop I would have taken a photo by now. I have attempted to get my daughter to try and get one while hanging out of the car window, but to no avail.
So you can see the I did a sketch from memory and proceeded to get the basic shape cut out of fabric.

The view is of a derelict building. It always looks different, depending on the time of day or time of year. I added some shading with a fabric pen.

I "thread painted" foliage, roof tiles etc and I changed the shape of the entrance when I realised it was looking too much like a dog kennel!

 I am not overly happy with the extra stitching that I put on the bottom, and I may chop that off.

'Til next time!

  3. I am enjoying to follow your process, Deborah, and think the result is lovely with or without the extra stitching at the bottom!

  4. I think you're right - love the cropped picture.

    Get your scissors out, girl! (and make something else with the bottom bit!)

  5. I love how it came out and seeing it evolve.
    I need to get my art brain working again, maybe just sit with some paper and a pencil and play.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
