Title: Fabric Art Journal birches page
Post by: Wulf on March 08, 2014 03:19:47 PM


I made this page for heini in the first Fabric Art Journal Pages Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=428699.0). She had listed "nature" as one of her themes, and as that covers much of what I like to do, it gave me a lot of leeway. "Koivu" is "birch" in Finnish, which is where heini lives. I was working on this in the dead of winter, it seemed an obvious choice!

The trees and background are linen and cotton, and are held down mostly by the bark detail and limbs embroidered in cotton floss. The letters are metal brads. Overall dimensions are 4 in. by 6 in.

I hear crunching snow every time I look at this.  And the dimension is wonderful.  I feel like I'm looking out a window ;D

This is lovely! I thought the word at the foot of the page looked Finnish, but wasn't sure. My Grandma's from there but I don't really know any of the language, just the general look of it.
Such crisp details...

This is so pretty - and that background fabric is the perfect color!!  I just moved to a place where there are so many birches - this is like looking out my window!  <3
