Miss Fiona Fish
(You can click on all of these pics to see the details!)
This little face may be familiar, and indeed, Miss Fish (aka Miss Fiona) is a piece that I've posted earlier. (Click here to go there!) However, there something a bit different about this version. Look closely . . . .
Embellished & Embroidered
I pulled out my old Singer sewing machine, gathered some embroidery floss along with some beads and baubles to have a go at a fabric version of Miss Fiona. Admittedly, I've fallen under the influence of a few textile artist friends of mine, and I decided to try to convert my art into something very tactile.
I used a saved copy of my artwork, an inkjet fabric sheet and my home printer. I'll try anything at least once! And although the following overview didn't scan very well (because of the embellishments), it'll give you a pretty good idea of the finished piece, although it's actually a bit more colorful in real life.
Special thanks to my two talented friends, Lorraine at Creative Daily and Trudi at Two Dresses Studio for sharing their creativity. inspiration and encouragement. If you have an opportunity, stop by their blogs to see some of their awesome textile creations.
A Few Quick Comments
Regarding my post the other day regarding the Sharpie paint pens, I was unaware that the Sanford - Sharpie - pens are not sold in the United Kingdom. For all of my friends in the UK, it's my understanding from a friend, that the Uni Posca paint pens are the same as the Sharpies.
Also, my sincere thanks to everyone for leaving such wonderful comments on yesterday's post regarding your artistic preferences between digital and cut and paste. The results of my informal poll definitely lean in favor of scissors, gel medium and paste. Frankly, I couldn't live without paint and paper scraps in my life!
