Melrose Arts Festival – this weekend!
I’ll be setting up my booth at Memorial Hall this evening. Lots of new product this year.
I just finished this one that’s a digital mix of my photo and scratch painting I did a couple of months ago and was printed by Spoonflower. I used one layer of cotton batting between the print on cotton and an eco-felt backing. Most often these days I only use one layer of eco-felt and no other batting, this time I wanted the outline stitching to be a bit more like embossing so I opted for the lighter, fluffier layer of cotton batting yet have that firmer stability that the eco-felt provides.
At first , I free motion stitched the tulip but I didn’t like it so much as I stitched it a bit excessively and it all flattened out so I mad an applique to go over it and I love how it came out adding just the right amount of drama and color to bring the whole thing together nicely. I can’t think much past this weekend at the moment but I’m already certain I’ll be sending another piece of my digital art to Spoonflower.
