it usually takes me at least 3 times of doing something before i am satisfied with it. . .
take this canvas. it has been painted brown with a green V,
black with an attempt at a coat of arms of the netherlands,
and finally mod podged with pages of a very old mythology book and decorated with fabirc flowers.
3 totally different takes.
that is me for you.
so i glued 2" square dowels on it to make it look like a canvas and "pop" off the wall.
flower #1 by sew ritzy titzy
rosette by little birdie secrets
ruffled flower by creation corner
rolled flower by the pilot's wife
flower #2 by house of smith's
yo yo by studio calico
and leaf / tulip flower well, my mom just kind of made that up. that is what she does. amazing woman.
she just took a little square, folded it in half, than folded the corners down and sewed around the bottom.
the stems, of course, are just a basic ruffle stitch
here is the final product. i am sure i will change the color of that "v" a few times.
for now, i think i like the subtly of it because i have so many other v's around my house.
this little monster gets into EVERYTHING, including the green food coloring while i was using the red and blue. if only some of his cuteness could have rubbed off on our 4th of july cake. . .
i still have a green little monster running around.
