Woohoo! Nemo is finished!!!
I'm happy with how the string art inspired me to create this piece! The background is a deconstructed screen print I did last winter. Not sure what I'll do with it! But what else is new! For those new to my blog, you can see where I started creating 'Nemo' and the progress when I was trying to decide what fish to use!
I added yarn edging and faced the quilt, which measures 12 1/2" x 18". Also, sequins and beads were added for each eye of the fish. If you look at my previous post for Nemo, you'll see where I changed the thread painted fish and made a new blue fish and a second orange fish to cover him up! I wasn't happy with the thread fish! This looks so much better. I think one of my blog readers left a comment and said to "flush" that fish! HA Good suggestion!
Isn't he cute!! I used a black seed bead for his eye with a dark blue sequin.
Not sure which fish is Nemo! But I think they're happy in their new home!!
I really enjoyed playing with the string art but the hard part was deciding which fish to use...blue, orange, one or both, etc. Thanks to all my blog readers who gave suggestions to help me decide which fish or how many to use!
