The flowers in my wall hanging are inspired by the Japanese sashiko, fabled flower methods Gertie Little has been teaching in her workshops. The background is painted and sun developed using ferns that I picked here at Sandy Point and dried last fall.
Extra colouring is introduced using the Neocolour 2 water crayons. I have also used anchor thread for the embroidery.
This was great fun to do. Gertie and I took a weekend to paint up dozens of backgrounds that she could use in her workshops.
