1  embroidered portrait - original design in Needlework: Completed Projects by ephemeracollector on: June 16, 2008 07:46:38 PM
this is an embroidered portrait of my friend abigail.  i did the design from a blind drawing i did of her at an art show.  it ended up looking not so blind, so i just cleaned it up a little and made it into an embroidery.

2  embroidered letter in Needlework: Completed Projects by ephemeracollector on: January 22, 2008 06:35:32 AM
just a little something i did awhile ago ... embroidered a letter to a friend.  this is a detail from it.



i was inspired by the chicken building at the ohio state fair.  Smiley

what this actually is, is the wrong side of a punch needle embroidery, my latest obsession.  i wanted it to be as much a freehand embroidery as possible, though i did sketch a very rough outline in pencil before sewing.

anyone else experimented with punch needle?

6  first print in a long time, used screen drawing fluid in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by ephemeracollector on: June 01, 2005 01:00:28 AM
no photoemulsion here!  this is all freehand based on a pre-existing image!  i'm sad about the poor registration, but happy with the effect otherwise.
