In case you missed some posts....I am currently working on several pieces for a little art show in April. I am using the theme "unexpected horizons" to tie my pieces together and fabric is just one medium I will be using. The show will be in my chiropractor, Dr. Adam's office gallery in Lexington and she invites any local artist to display their work for a month. Know anyone? Check out her website for more about her practice. Dr. Adams is also a stone sculptor...check her amazing work out here.
As usual I'm still still mulling over the framing...but will probably go with this. I thought I measured so carefully...but it ended up just a hair smaller than I would have liked....I wanted just a hint of the stripe showing. Staining the outer frame will help tie it all together.
I just realized as I see it on the screen that the little yellow square of the batik looks like a candle next to the navy one above it.
I'm also still deciding on the floss accents....I had some french knots but wasn't sure I like them so took them out. I kind of sweat the details....so once again...I will set it aside. It's far enough along to know it will work out in the end.
I found these chunky frames at Michaels...they were 40% off and another 20% my whole purchase....so they were literally less than $5 each. A chunky canvas that fits into the wooden frame that I edged with striped fabric using matt medium.
The cover of this planner I made for Connie was also done with hand dyed fabric from Cherrywood. Their colors are so rich! These fabrics came in a set called "Tropicana." I have enough for lots of projects! I'm seeing some horizons in these colors!
