I'm FINALLY finished! Me & my crazy ideas...So my man and I are slowly remodeling our home. We are sprucing the place up ourselves since the economy is in the crapper and I am unemployed. There was one wall that I felt needed some art. I came up with the crazy idea of doing a tapestry. Long story short, this was my third and final attempt. I went to Joann's and purchased a yard and a half of canvas and got back to the drawing board
I'm currently going through a Mehndi stage. I just love the designs...
So here is how it all started;
First I hemmed & sewed the sides leaving room to insert a dowel at the top & bottom...
I downloaded some Mehndi designs and hand sketched them on the canvas and then outlined the whole thing with black sharpie markers. Then I washed and dried it to get the pencil marks off and ironed it.
then I colored it in with paint & fabric markers and regular markers..Sorry for the crappy pics
here it it finally all colored in!
then I decided to add some rhinestones & glitter...
Then I went through my jewelry making stuff and made a hanger for it..
And Voila...the finished tapestry up on the wall! :-)
its about 18" wide & 45" tall.
Hope you like it! Thanks for looking :-)
again...sorry for the crappy pics, but what do you think?
