A few weeks ago I posted on how I started on my 2nd stitched collage. This was the stencil I cut out and fused onto my printed paper background.
From that point, I stamped some leaf prints on top and finished it by free motion quilting only on the stamped leaves.
This was the finished piece...nothing exciting...so I decided to cut it up by playing with editing the picture of the finished piece.
I sliced the original 9"x12" into two sections and attached to a white canvas.
I used #5 Perle Cotton yarn and poked through the canvas using my handy, dandy thimble pad (you can see that post & link on how to make one here). I knew that thimble would come in handy!
It really worked! I did punch small holes in the canvas and the paper stencil but it was so easy to push the needle/thread through vs struggling with pulling on the needle.
And this was my end result! I'm quite happy with how this piece turned out and I like it so much better cut vs being a whole piece. And now on to the next lesson which is photo collage!
