A beautiful appliqued picture of four ladies on the beach, enjoying the sunshine, and generally relaxing with each other. I have created this by using a combination of free motion embroidery ( effectively drawing with your sewing machine, fabric paint and applique. The background fabrics are layered cottonS, linen, scrims and textured treasures and finished with a combination of embroidery and applique.
I love the bright colours, and it was inspired by my friendship group...... it’s very likely how we will all be in a few years time!
I’ve tried to capture the sparkly sea...... there is a shiny thread running through one of the fabrics which glints wonderfully in the sun.
The odd frayed edge is part of the process and overall feel that I was trying to achieve too.
The finished piece measures 40cm x 30cm, with the inner mount measuring 30cm x 20cm. It is finished with. Landscape orientation. It comes ready mounted with a high quality Antique White mount, and is attached to a firm white backboard, ready for just dropping into a frame. It is packaged in a cello wrapper meaning it can just be wrapped separately if being purchased for a present.
