Giving Thanks

Hand made gifts are the best way (IMO) to say thank you.  I recently made this thank you card for a friend.

The process:

canvas with layer of gesso and dry brushed green acrylic paint

more dry brushed acrylic paints in blue, gray, lavender

painted in area for face and hair; lightly penciled features

adding detail with acrylic paint

creating depth with Prismacolor pencils

canvas squared up, adhered to Dritz InnerFuse, free motion machine quilted.  Lastly a piece of my hand dyed cotton was adhered to the back; zigzag finished edges; personal message written on back.

Visit Pink Saturday to see more interesting things!
