May 9th Challenge - stitching

May Theme
Touchy Feely (Texture)
May 9
Art Challenge:  Stitching
Journal Prompt:  "All that I'm after is life full of laughter."

I cut up some scraps of gelli'ed deli paper and sewed them together on my sewing machine.  Next I cut out three hearts.  I painted  a blue background with Distress paints and some blue Inka Gold rub.  I painted a black frame with black gesso...(thanks Michael for the idea)... and then doodled with silver, purple and blue metallic sharpies.  I wrote the sentiment ... created a shadow around the hearts and doodled some too.

Here is a close-up of the one of the stitched hearts.

I like to take the challenge one bit further and apply it to my card art.  So I sewed some of the gelli print onto card stock, stamped a bike and sentiment.  Crystal laquer was added to the flowers.  Done.

  1. I really like how differently the black gesso'd frame can be interpreted. Loved that you stitched together the deli papers. I still haven't tried stitching paper. And the card is fabulous as always.
