Watercolor Love Birds - Go Out on a Limb to Be Thankful

ArtQuilt, Painting Canvas, Thread Stitching, Free-Motion

This started out on a piece of canvas torn from a  $9 painter's drop cloth.  I had no design in mind except I was going to have big blooms and somehow the face came into play, but more of an "on the side" item vs the flowers.

I had fun drawing & painting this art quilt.  It is not that big.  I would say 2.5 feet by 3.5 feet, but that is just an estimate.  I gave it to my sister-in-law as a present and I didn't record the final measurements.  She'll hang it as with a tapestry rod.


I'm not a traditional thread sketcher.  In fact, I have not done much of it as you can probably tell, but I'm enjoying the journey. I like thread sketching to get out of the lines rather than to stay in them.

I like the thread sketching to took look like it came out of my sketchbook (where I make quick sketches, not finished pieces) and it adds an additional texture & dimension.  I hope you enjoy!
