tutorial part 2 Winter scene -
I have done some more on this wall hanging - I finished up the background and added snow to the foreground as well as two large trees - these are larger than the back ground trees and help put the background further back.
I then finished thread painting the bushes in the foreground and added a coyote -- I used steam a seam lite and then appliqued the animal with invisible thread .
I then sprinkled the whole scene with white paint using my toothbrush and a piece of card board to do the snow.
I put the acrylic craft paint on my toothbrush and spattered it on a piece of dark paper until it was the consistency I wanted and then carried on spraying the whole scene. I did this 3 times lightly and it looked good.
I squared off the scene, and started adding the first border in medium brown. I Still have the top and bottom to add and then will add a dark blue border 3" wide for the outside.
I will put the last portion of this tutorial in a post when I have added the other brown borders as well as the outside border - Shirley
