My "package" was FULL of surprises - I was giddy! I was stitching the other day and thought I needed to get some mother of pearl style buttons and low and behold, some arrived. There are lace motifs, a lovely collaged tag and some printed images. I haven't seen lace motifs like these ones so they are quite special. You've inspired me Viola - thank you my friend for your generosity!
I decided to add more stenciling then played around practicing some calligraphy and a very small amount of graffiti! I was going to add more graffiti, colour and other layers but got stuck at that point (again) and felt the background was so colourful and light that it would suit flowers more than graffiti so changed directions and added flowers and leaves!
This is the final result! Originally I had planned to rip it in pieces for mail art. BUT, I have decided to keep it as is and am going to hang it in the yard next summer! Another piece, completely different is underway as I write.....
It is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so will be back on Tuesday. Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians.
I have a reputation for my mincemeat tarts and make my own mincemeat!
