Yesterday's Teaser

Yesterday's Wordless Wednesday was a teaser of my newest hand embroidery piece. It is from another comic, this time Poison Ivy. What I am showing off now took 3 nights at 3-4 hours each to complete. But I am not quite done.

I still have to add the leaves. I decided to give the piece some texture by using organza bits for the leaves. You can see from the original artwork that there are lots and lots of leaves. I am not sure just how many I will be adding. We'll see...

This looks like a relaxing hobby :) I might just have to add cross-stitch to my list of crafty adventures!

she is wild! I just bought a bunch of comics to use for my art journaling. Fantastic Four. Truth be told, I don't know that much about them. {:-D
