April


Well, April is over for us here in Australia, but I might just sneak this in with Blogger, so here is April in all it's glory, done.

This is what I have come to know as Altered Photo Artistry. I took this photo in my garden, then altered it slightly with PhotoShop. It was then printed onto Inkjet Printable Silk fabric. After stabilizing with fusible vilene, pellon and shapewell, I machine stippled in what I hope are the right places.

The dark avocado green dupion seemed to be a nice frame for the photo, and again, this is a technique that I have learnt a lot from doing.

Onwards now to May and possibly machine embroidery of the digitized kind........

WOW, that is really amazing. I really love the softness of it and the green is a beautiful setting for a truly gorgeous rose.
Is this a needlebook - what does the inside look like?

The picture is amazing! This is something I have not done yet, so much to learn!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I only started this March myself, so still learning.

Oh Linda, that is simply stunning. I couldn't see all the work until i looked at a larger image. So beautiful. The small photo does not do it justice. I couldn't use all the adjectives i want to; lovely!!

Linda, this is just superb, I love the stippling between the petals. I agree the green silk complements the rose perfectly.
Hugs to you.
