|Andi cutting the paper pattern she will use to make all the straps nice and even.|
|Andi sewing -- she has to take her right shoe off and work the pedal barefoot.|
|Sewing, sewing, sewing!|
|Ironing more and turning corners out.|
|Nice work, Andi...that would have driven me to tears!|
|I got the middle strap a little off center, but -- ta-daaaaaaa! This is what it will look like -- kinda like hanging a quilt from a dowel.|
|And this is how I hope it will look once I put the grommets in...they are just sitting there for now. I still need to sand (and probably wax) the board so it is nice and smooth -- no slivers!|
I also discovered some creatures and a theme for this papered canvas.
I had to take photos after I outlined the creatures so I could find them again later...good luck trying to spot them -- I almost couldn't find them again already. I have no clue yet how I am going to work on this collage yet in order for viewers to see the creatures.
I also brought two other collages to near-done-ness...I had to trace and cut out small pieces to fit into spots on creatures in both collages. I try to tear paper as often as I can vs cutting it because the edges fade into the collage better, but some of these pieces I cut today needed to be cut and it won't matter that they have straight edges in the end. No peeks, though!
