"The Duck Whisperer " - Unplugged

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Transition from digital to cloth -

From the flat blue screen to 3D with beading and embroidery floss

My first attempt at making french knots -

The bird cage - with a button as the door -

Embroidering "leaves of grass" -

Almost ready to mail - :0)

This is lots of fun Trudi, great humour! Love the hat!

OMG, Trudi! Where on earth did you ever find the perfect little button for the bird cage!?! All of your embroidery is awesome and truly enhances this piece. Two quick questions: 1) Was this printed on purchased ink jet fabric sheets, and 2)What have you used to back this? LOVE it to pieces! Hugs, Terri xoxo

The Artist Within Us said...

The transition of an idea from one media to another always has pit falls that one most over come and these challenges in the end make us a better artist, though for now we may be wanted to tear out our hair in frustrations.

Love the sequence of photographs.

I don't know why Blogger didn't update my blog friends' sites. I missed all the cool stuff you had been doing. I love how this turned out on fabric. I love your digital, your paste, paper and cut and whatever else you do and frankly it's all YOUR creative stuff.
The blog banners and buttons are cute. :)Bea
