Mono print on canvas

I finished my mono print on canvas piece this past weekend.  This was fun to work on and sure gave me some encouragement to work on more pieces...OK, after I finish some of our lessons!  HA

This was the inspiration photo I used to create my mono print.  Hilary showed us how to apply our paint to produce mono prints.  This was a great lesson as my mono prints sure never ended up looking like anything!

This was my mono print I created based on the photo!

And my finished mono print on canvas. I had a hard time taking this picture.  You know the canvas is accurate but the picture looks like my 'edges' are not!  HA  The piece measures 16" x 20".

I attached the top and bottom with embroidery thread (Perle cotton).

The back of the canvas where I stitched top/bottom.

Some detail of stitching.  I also used Gelato crayons, Derwent pencils and pastels to color some of the background.

Free motion quilting and a lot of fun to finish the piece!!

This past week and next we're doing a 'review' of the last few months, focusing on color and design, which is REALLY interesting.  I'm a tad behind with going to Ohio and dealing with a sick dog...but Hilary is off to another show so we'll have time to catch up again.  Whew!  I do so love this course!!


  1. Very impressive…..are you sure you don’t want to come here and join our FJ groups??

  2. This is really lovely- so many details and levels of work have gone into it. Hope Gigi is improving? This has certainly been an in-depth class and you've gotten a lot from it.

  3. I love this, I must get my gelli pad and paints out!
