My sister had asked me to use some Polish Folk Art and come
up with a needle point design for my Mom, for her Christmas gift.
Below is the finished art.
There you have it.
I like it. It's not QUITE what I was hoping for, but then again,
it never is.
Inked the half sketch.
The finished paper with colors, and then the
inked needle point scrim underneath. I bought needle point scrim
from Joann's, then just sewed some binding on the the unfinished edges, and printed out the sketch at 14"x14". She likes to turn her needle-point's into pillows, so I made it just a bit smaller than the pillow form.
I didn't color in the scrim, I just colored the paper poster, and will let her pick her own colors.
Now, my sister had mentioned that I hadn't made her a watercolor painting. I was doing some paintings last year but stopped because I wasn't happy with the way they turned out.
So, I picked out my favorite piece of art that she gave me. And did a small watercolor painting of it.
There you go.
