I finished and mailed in my SAQA Auction piece last week. I used four prints of the blueprinted mimosa leaf and lots of hand stitching, over fourteen hours worth of hand stitching.
I was able to do lots of hand stitching because I'm still keeping the foot up a lot. I did get to see the Podiatrist and he has given me a larger boot to wear.
I did get out to studio b for a short time yesterday and played just a bit. Lisa gave me a new stamp for my birthday so I had to try it out.
The Weekly Leaf
This weeks leaf was done a few weeks ago when I was playing with flour paste. I cut a leaf out of freezer paper, then ironed the background piece , not the leaf to a piece of rust hand dyed fabric.
Below is the freezer paper ironed on with the flour paste scraped over the cut out, and veins drawn in with a skewer.
Next shows the freezer paper removed and cleanser with bleach painted over the whole piece.
After washing and neutralizing the bleach.
