It's been a while since I've posted - been busy, as we all are... Anyways, I'm on a short vacation from work for the holidays, and the first thing I did was stitch. Here's what I came up with: (she's wrinkly b/c I haven't ironed yet).
She's hand-stitched, and I drew her myself, but took inspiration from a book of pinups that my husband has at our shop. It's sort of from those pulp mags from the 40's and 50's.The keyhole is stenciled and brushed on with some acrylic paint. Here's a closeup of her face:
Like I said, it's slightly unfinished, but I wanted to post anyways. I ended up giving it to a friend of ours for Christmas, and he's pretty happy with it. It took me about 6 hours to complete, from drawing to painting.
What do you think?
