25 1/2" X 18"
Raw edged fused applique
I must admit that this piece had its challenges and I almost gave up on it. However, I persevered and am fairly happy with the results. I always remember looking down into the field by our house growing up, and seeing the deer in the early morning. They would be nervous as the daylight crept in but could not resist a few more bites of the fresh spring grass before heading back into the woods.
Not sure I would use the tulle as extensively the next time. I hate working with invisible thread even though it moved through the machine well. It is just hard to handle and not my favorite but for the fog it does disappear well. I chose to try using a new product I have been hearing about which is the inktense pencil. It is like a colored pencil but if you take a wet brush to it afterwards it blends right in. I used it to shade the edges of the tree and its branches and I thought it worked nicely. I also used it on the deer's bodies for shading Hope you enjoyed the rocky road journey with me. On to another adventure.
