Diary of an Art Piece #2 - Part 2
Adding the butterflies took a long time. My first problem was how to make them... I tried light and heavy shimmer fabrics at first, to try and give the feel of lightness to the wings but they didn't seem to work with the base. So, I eventually decided to use a felt base instead and a covering of long stitch using stranded cottons...
So finally a frame... what to use?? Well, I opted for a gold and silver antiqued frame, which you can't really see properly in this picture, but it does set the paleness of the background off against the darker flower bud and butterfly details.
When I get some time I hope to add all of my artworks to my website's gallery at Sara's Texture Crafts - Gallery This will give those of you who won't be able to make the show in London in March a flavour of my exhibition.
What next? Well, I have one final artwork to do and then those are complete for the show... now where's that list of things to do - must make a start on my stock!
