I’ve been working on a few more mixed media pieces like this one. I have sketched several Montana wild flowers that I use for inspiration when I free motion stitch them on the machine.
First I fuse a piece of interfacing to the back of a hand dyed piece of fabric. Then I free motion machine stitch the flower. Afterwards, I paint these with Inktense pencils and water. This first one is a mountain pink.
This last one is from a sketch I did while I was in LaConner, Wa. So now I need to paint these with gel medium, cut them to size and add them to the wood backgrounds. I’ll show you how they look when they are finished. I did make a few more felted coffee cuffs last week. You can see them on The Purple Pomegranate blog if you’d like.
