And to prove it:-
This is the background piece that I am going to use to cover the canvas. There's a lot of quilting but since most of it will be hidden by the front (main) piece I am going to cheat and just quilt the edges.
I am keeping it all very 'flat' and using acrylic felt as the backing. Spot my latest favourite material - ground coffee wrapping. I have been attaching it using Bondaweb, though I am sure glue would work just as well, and it is lovely to stitch.
Here is a bit of detail of the main front piece. More coffee wrappings glinting there.
Meanwhile, I did say that I had a new camera for Christmas. Well, I am just getting the hang of it (and I hope you will agree that my pics are a bit better) but I have found one fab feature on it - colour enhancer. Just look how magical it made one of our local dog walks. This was taken on the 2nd Jan - it was a dull grey day and normally such a photo would have been as boring as hell. But this effect is fab. Ok, so I know it exaggerates a bit but for me it captured the essence of a lovely wood in January.
