Oh man! Summer is right around the corner. The temperatures are rising. Days are getting longer. Margaritas and pina coladas are flowing. It's time to don the brights, let loose, and parrrrrtay!
Aaaaaah. It's so colorful and whimsical. And yes! It's made from an embroidery hoop. This makes me want to whip up a Rum Runner or a Mai Tai. OR WHY NOT BOTH?
All I did was slap some black and white gesso onto the hoop. The weaving is actually very easy to do and it's even more fresh with color variety. The easiest thing I have found to do the weaving with is hemp cording. It's also best to do it sober as well.
Now just look at that Flora piece! That is from the "Flora
" set by Relics & Artifacts
. Sometimes the best thing to do is just leave things as is. Which I didn't do! I added some black and white striping and some of the coolest flower beads. Just pile glue in and cram 'em in!
