Fern and Feathers
I thought I might share this image with you, titled "Fern and Feathers". It is a small scale fiberart monoprint with machine stitching to enhance some of the lines and give some interest. It is edged in satin stitch. There is some beadwork on it just to give a little spark to it. Click on the picture to see a larger view and the beadwork shows right up. I really enjoyed making this piece and had a lot of fun with it.
Monoprinting is not difficult but can be time consuming as the dyes need to sit on the fabric for a few hours to obtain the correct saturation and the dyes need to maintain their moisture in order to be effective.
