Little Travelers

Her bag is packed.

And her dolly is snug in her arms.
What adventure awaits?

Pens and Needles

This project began with a drawing.
I transferred the drawing to my embroidery fabric and colored in the design with fabric makers. I stitched the outline/drawing with stem stitch.
After stitching the outline I went back and added more color.
But I'm not done!

I re-sized a photo of the embroidery to fit into one of the casket drawers. I printed out 8 little images on one sheet of photo print glossy paper.

Then I started having fun cutting away segments of the image, layer by layer.

I'm not sure what this technique is called. I think it was very popular in the late 70's.

I used flat wooden toothpicks as spacers glued between layers.
It isn't a tunnel book exactly but just another experiment along those lines.
