At the summer art show, the three stitched, beaded and mounted photographs that I created all sold. Interesting! In a way they were afterthought pieces, but obviously they appealed to folks. I have decided to make some more, and see if I can sell them through the Denman Island Craft Shop.
|Here are the digitally altered photos, printed on my inkjet printer on matte photo paper, backed with grey felt, and free motion stitched on the sewing machine. The edges are satin stitched with rayon thread.|
|The stretched canvases have been painted with blue acrylic paint. I want to make sure that they are truly dry before I mount the photos with beads around the edges of each stitched photo.|
