Neutral hanging

Next project from my Mixed Media Melange online course. We were challenged to work with a neutral palette. This was a hard one for me since I am usually all about colour :-)
First layer - papers glued over canvas paper. Painted with layers of neutral paint (I prefer the white to the titanium buff colour since I had such a dark collage layer). Not very excited by it at this point. Amazing what an image and some stitching and tags can do :-) Machine-stitched down each side - left hand fancy programmed machine stitch - right hand is my fav free-motion swirly stitch. . "Create" stamped onto fabric and then stitched to hanging and free-motioned around the words and up to the heart. Some of the tags were dyed with walnut ink - then stamped, or drawn on, some dried flowers applied, and others with punched flowers. And here it is hanging in situ on my arty room door - and now I love it.Fantastic course - you should join us.....Tyvek tomorrow - can't wait.
