Tweetie and Old Lace

Finally, we’ve arrived at Day 30.  Tweetie and Old Lace is another piece that started out as a screen print, then got embellished. Tweetie went with me on vacation, and received a lot of stitching and attention during the long hours in the car. This is one of the small “gems” that I’ll frame and sell for under $100.

Winter Meadow lo res

This is another product of the screen printing class I took. I made three passes with the screen: the translucent blue shadows and tracks, a tan color of the weeds, and a darker colors of some of the weeds, as an accent.  Then I heavily hand embroidered the piece. I am excited about this one.  The view of our meadow in the snow is special to me.

Tweetie is another product of my screen printing class which I am taking at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading, PA. Purple Tweetie is printed on a book page, and augmented by gel printed fabrics, which are also embroidered. There is a lot going on in this small piece.

cat 100 lo res

Another product of my screen printing class taken at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading, PA. This little baby is accompanied by some special paper — actual money from Portugal. I love the orange rose. The dark blue print is a scrap of silk from an antique kimono. And of course the hand embroidery sets it all off nicely.

Another cat from my screen printing venture– a class at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts taught by Abby Ryder.  The additional stamping and embroidery give her some extra character and interest.

This little sweetie is the product of a screen printing class I took at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts from Abby Ryder. I printed the brightly colored cat four times, so she may look familiar in the next three days.

It will be framed, but that is not accomplised yet.
