embroidery thread<---in this case a blue thread I found while thrifting, not sure of the brand but it is as thick as 6 strands of the DMC embroidery type but not as strong of fibers
optional: spray sealant
|Completed portrait Raven.|
|Completed landscape Raven|
|I lightly sketched the ravens in pencil (because it is hard to erase lines at this point on top of the glue and paint) and then traced over with black medium point Sharpie.|
|These are my original paper patterns for the two ravens I use in my business. I just freehand sketched and enlarged.|
|The larger sketches did not turn out too badly for freehanding and I am happy even if their proportions are not exactly right I know that is just the OCD artist talking ;).|
|Some more angles of the landscape Raven after Sharpie tracing....he's got some rather large feet eh? lol its also the angle I took the picture from but it looks funny here.|
|He is so handsome.|
|I captured the blue in the light in these pics.|
|I have a couple of places to glue down on the edges and they will be ready to hang today.|
I hope you enjoyed this project. I know I did!!
This week I will be showing off more of my Covered in Stitches/Altered Book project it is turning out to be quite the fun art invention.
