I recently finished and submitted art for a quote challenge offered by Somerset Studio Magazine. I found this one to be the toughest to date. I don't know all I could think of was "Which came first the chicken or the egg?" Do I do the art and find the quote or do I find a quote and do the art?! I found the quotes first, but some quotes were harder than others to portray. Here is a sneak peek of some of the art I submitted. I love quotes and enjoyed the challenge, but found it hard to quit. I wish I had made more and maybe when I catch up on life(cleaning, laundry, clutter) I will make some more ;D.
Green fingers are the extension of a verdant heart~Inside the stitched gloves you can add a gift card, seeds or a small token.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul-
And sings the tune without the words-
And never stops-at all~
I also made one more with using an Emily Dickinson quote. Believe it or not, my fence is made out of paper bag strips, covered with vellum. I layered photos underneath and yes, painted the paper bag vintage white. Warning sewing on vellum can be dangerous, you can't see it here, but I the glue didn't stay and I stitched the sides. It is always fun to experiment~ It was quite the adventure, I lost a piece of my my sewing machine, that holds the thread in place and had to make a MacGyver device using my baking powder lid. Yes, I had another I Love Lucy meets MacGyver kind of day~
