Finally, in my GOE group, it was Tracey's turn to present us with our next quarterly challenge. Her idea was to have us finish a UFO (unfinished object for those of you that might not know the acronym) without spending any more money on it.
Well, which UFO to work on...I have plenty to choose from...
I decided that I'd try to finish up all of the UFOs I have in various stages of completeness (or incompleteness for you pessimists out there!). This piece is the first one I've managed to finish up...and, I've also started three new fibre art pieces (not to mention journalling and photography 'stuff' LOL). Can you say "attention deficit"?
The tissue paper was adhered using more matte medium and when dry, I used a Pitt pen to trace over the lettering and fill it out.
After letting that dry overnight, I used a white Sakura Jelly Roll pen to add some highlights to the lettering. This is something I just figured out this week. I'd often have trouble with the white pen giving me a really nice, consistent line, even though a gave the black a few minutes to dry before trying to write over top of it. Since waiting overnight, it works like a charm for me! Who knew!
The final step was to adhere the needle felted piece to the canvas, you guessed it, with more matte medium.
