Last week I painted, this week I stitched! The technique for this week was to stitch a frame for needlework. I decided to use one of the pieces I stamped last week.
After the first layer of paint had dried, I stamped the yellow pears onto the background. Today, I fused a couple of larger pear shapes to the piece.
I did some free motion stitching, to “sketch” lines to emphasize the shapes. Then I stitched this octagonal frame. Here’s a close-up:
Although I like the nice, crisp edge on this frame, it seems a bit too plain.
Ah, yes . . . that’s better. I may want to add something underneath the pears, but I’m happy with this for now.
I have the other stamped piece for a future project, and I did play around a bit with other paints. One I thought I’d share is Tulip Puff paint.
It goes on using the tube applicator, and then you apply heat/steam after it dries. It really does puff up! Kind of interesting. Now, what can I use that on, I wonder?
