This is my finished Bohemian Sisters challenge, "Leaping in Art Deco".
I graphed a flapper girl photo and used all left-over thread floss from my stash.
I used one of those printed aida fabrics and decided to keep the print showing on her face. I thought it made her look more interesting.
After the cross stitching, I embellished her with beads for her earring, and on her face near her eye. The beads are also left-overs from kits I've made. They don't show up so well on the camera but they are really awesome in person.
The large "sputnik" bead on her earring is actually a found object. I got that a few years ago in a parking lot.
It was crushed and broken on one of the bumps, (which is now the side towards the fabric). I was so happy to finally find a use for it!)
The feathers are from a boutonnière package I had gotten from Hobby Lobby ob clearance. I took it apart and made two fancies adding ribbons and eyelash yarns.
The frame is just an ordinary wood cross stitch hoop which I taped with duct tape. It has this amazing flower design on it.
The pattern is so busy that it doesn't matter about the tape seams not matching each other.
Here it is hung up on my wall.
(Yes, I have a messy, cluttered craft room.)
