The Hidden Life of Black Holes. This started as 4 small squares that were monoprinted, stitched and beaded. This was from an Ilze Aviks class I took at QSDS. They hung around for awhile until I decided to put them together and covered them with netting and tulle. I made them look like they were bursting from the tulle. About a year later I learned about free motion stitching and added the stitching in the background. This was before I figured out how to print on cloth. It was a journey.
A close up.
A second piece. The beading gives these pieces a lovely feel and weight. It goes rather quickly if you get yourself to sit and do it. Put some classical music on, or queue up some CDs.
Keeps your hands out of the cookie jar!
