More about the background

I grabbed my pencil and favorite source book, went out to the patio, and played. The $2.00 I spent on this book years ago has been a great investment. The effect I am after is old, worn wallpapers, so I do a washy paint job, do minimal stitching, and for the first bird asked the finishing geniuses at The Spinning Wheel to back it with a shiny aqua colored fabric. I love the work they do. Each of the three bird pieces will have a different background. This may be about creativity, this may be about a short attention span. Who knows. So, that's the lecture for now. If the image on your canvas is floating in white space and you want to add a background, do it! As I said yesterday, I am happy to help, let's talk (email)!

Happy stitching ,
