For craftgasm night one, I finally got around to finishing some wall art for miss Emilie, I've been meaning to complete it for FOREVER, but hey inspiration sometimes takes time! I originally had intentions of painting the whole thing but couldn't seem to paint the words in a manner to my liking, resulting in approximately 12 cover up layers when I messed up. Finally, in a stroke of brilliance, I decided to embroider the quote directly on the painting, first by writing out the quote on paper, then taping it to the canvas and used a pushpin to create the holes for the embroidery. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, even if my fingers are a little tender from all that stitching! (Note to self, need thimble.)
*If you're wondering, the quote is from a Bob Dylan song, With God On Our Side.
Tonight I'm planning on starting on the many pillows I've been commissioned to make, I'll keep you updated!
What projects are you excited to start this fall?
