Mixed Media Wall Art
This was another technique I picked up at The Crafts House.
The idea (I think!), is to divide up your chosen piece into equal portions - in this case squares and 'treat' each individually. Here, I'v'e gone a step further and incorporated rectangles, comprising 2 or 3 of the squares.
The materials I used range from wallpaper, through to plush velvet. I've also included a small piece of blackwork and the embellishment uses embroidery, scraps of thread and pumpkin seeds painted gold. The 'punctum' is a brass ring covered in blanket stitch.
The world's your lobster with this, as it costs virtually nothing to produce and it can be made any size at all to suit your needs.
Mine sits happily on the porch wall. I'm seriously considering doing something similar but on a grander scale, to go above my bed.
