Take a painting and add stitches

Here’s another “using up the paint” painting.


Another left over paint painting



I am now stitching it (after adding a little gold paint). Instead of stitching the paper directly, as I usually do, I glued it to felt with a glue stick  and am creating lines with stitch. When I feel I’ve stitched enough, I’ll add more layers of paint.

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    ok. I’ve subscribed to the feed….will that bring it to my inbox? I just don’t know about these rss things – I’ve never found them really simple!

    • Carol Wiebe says:

      Tammy, I know the feed will bring it to your reader of choice (I use Google Reader). I think you have to set it up on there if you want an email notice about it.

    I’d like to know how the glue stick method works for you, Carol. I’ve found that it gunks up my needles so I generally use Misty Fuse or Steam-a-Seam 2 Lite when I want to bond things together before stitching.

    • Carol Wiebe says:

      I used just enough to sort of stick it in place, Shirley, then added stitches around the edge by machine. I did not have any sticking problems.

I LOVE hearing from you!
