Take a lesson from your dog
Kick some grass over that shit and move on
Thought it was cute
Glad you like ! ;)
Another I've heard a lot lately;
Not My circus, Not My Monkey
I have found myself saying these a lot .... Very enlightening ;)
|Not every zentangle pattern translates into stitches ... so 3 of the petals are black organza ... the empty 'flopped over' petal pieces will be the colour of the background that I choose to stitch Zentangle Rose to. |
I have already painted a warm pinky gray fabric for the background but have left the option of a white background, open. It will depend on what contrast I like better when it comes to stitching it all down.
|... water-soluble rinsed off and rose blocked while it dries (and drips ;) ... it is pinned to a 12" sq. piece of styrofoam and wrapped around a bit ... will be on an 18"x18" stretcher frame when finished.|

|February in a local thicket|
|So, I started with a sketch of a rose (one of my own photographs), |
then free-handed a Zentangle Rose
|It took the whole week to decide what patterns to use and then fill up the petals (I take my sweet time)|
|The back of 'Sunset, Parry Sound, Killbear' before the tree is added to the front |
... the back always has its own special interest ... the stitches wouldn't pass muster at a quilt show ! ;) I was using a rayon thread to do the quilting part ... it kept breaking and was the right colour, so I continued for many days to cover the background
|Some hand-stitching to secure the paper pieces and to connect the water |
on both pieces of brown paper.
|Then some machine sewing in the ditches to secure the previously made tree (see 2 posts back) in place ... easy-peasy :)|
|Hanging from my ironing board today ... off to get a stretcher frame in a few days after my truck battery is deemed ok ... the freezing temps have played havoc with my little truck. |
This finished canvas is slightly smaller than the original measurements due to shrinkage when 'quilting' the background, but I quilted beyond the basting line, to cover that little problem ... so finished piece will be 18" x 22"
