Art Every Day, Sunday, March 3, 2013
Here is today's new piece. It makes me think of celebrations. I began the piece by laying a piece of black fabric down at an angle on top of the yellow, dye painted batting. Then I added the stamped black and white piece on top at a different angle. Then I cut bits of dyed rayon ribbon and inserted one end under the stamped piece.
I stitched the stamped piece in yellow, which you can barely see then stitched the ribbons down with a mutli colored thread along the edges. The black was stitched with straight edged swirls that fit inside each shape and the yellow batting is finished with a wavy line around the perimeter. I added the three bone beads once all of the stitching was done. I think they look like candy.
I like how the black looks like it was reverse appliqued behind the yellow batting, the ribbons sit in the mid ground and the black and white print just pops off the surface. It's just a fun little piece.
Hope you have a fabulous Sunday,
