Oh, I should make something similar for my friend who is also an, as you put it, conneisseur of cursing, and sometimes uses this word in Swedish (which would be "rvhatt" Grin). I had no idea the word even existed in English!

I love the contrast you created by using that flowery fabric.

Hilarious!  My friends and I have a lot of fun quoting Buffalo Bill whenever using sunscreen or putting leather conditioner on horse tack Grin And I admire your patience embroidering with bacon Grin Never tried it myself but I imagine it to break easily.
23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Imrahil tries embroidery on: May 19, 2011 01:13:56 AM
We had a crafting workshop at uni earlier this spring. I wetfelted a large square and made a potholder and a coffee cozy.
This is the potholder! It was my first attempt at wool embroidery, and I used backstitch, stem stitch, french knots, and some kind of filling stitch just to try them all.

The top one in this picture is the one I made at the workshop. I used chain stitch and mattress stitch.

Then I got home, and started looking at embroidery all over the internet, and wanted to try some more. I bought a bag of roving and wet-felted some more pieces to work on. That resulted in the two coffee cozies in the bottom of the picture, and this:

This piece is inspired by the traditional embroidery of Dala-Floda, a Swedish village with a beautiful tradition of embroidery. If you google "psm" you will see what I mean!

This pine tree is backstitch and a lot of french knots.

I have en idea about making lots of embroidered 1 ft squares and making a blanket. I guess it will take a long time!

I've been busy trying to learn some science theory. Hope to get some journaling done soon!  I keep looking in my journal and thinking of ideas, now to get them on paper!

Awesome pages Imrahil! And I think I can spot a scrap from our swap! Smiley
Yes, next to the crazy lady!
I've already put lots of it to good use in several journals!

I love your calendar spread. Black paint sounds cool, or how about a messy black frame?

Yay, Nooo is back in the thread! I've missed you!

Thanks! My first language is Swedish.

I doubt that watercolor will stick on top of white acrylic, but you could probably do something similar with acrylics. I haven't tried but I think so.

I blame it on English not being my first language Grin

I like the texture of gesso, it's a bit rougher than white acrylic paint.

And with the whole monkey thing - did your sister actually put her head in WITH the monkeys?Huh

No, it was a display of what different animals would eat, so inside the gorilla head was a bunch of bananas Grin Scary enough for her!
But she did go see the real monkeys as well (not putting her head inside though:))

As for my first page, it's gesso on top of a printer paper with text, then watercolour on top of the gesso.

I don't have any new finished pages right now but I thought I'd show you some that I've been working on anyway.

This is a mad Spanish queen.

And this is the lovely wife of Skull Man Grin

Overcome your fears! This is my sister doing somenthing I NEVER thought she would. She's totally terrified of monkeys so putting her head in there took some serious bravery. The page is a bit too "scrapbook-y" for my taste so I'll probably put some paint on top of some parts.
