Today I started tossing around ideas for a new project. I found this oil painting in a charity shop and it looked so peaceful and tranquil - almost like an unspoken prayer. I loved the pale colours especially the sky where the mauve flows up into the pink. Anyway, I took the picture out of the gold frame, scanned it into the computer and then printed it on Photo paper. After that, I machine stitched the A4 material image onto backing fabric and I've started messing around with various colours and tones of material to try and extend the picture out on all sides. I'll use the original to refer to when I want to add grasses and seaweed to the sides and bottom edges.
I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew this time. Watch this space because believe me, it will be just as much a surprise to me as to anyone else.
