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.
The technique had something of a vogue among crafters about five years ago, too, but I bet none of them used photos of their own work to do it with!ReplyDelete
I think this has turned out very well.
The delights of Photoshop make so many things possible!ReplyDelete
Do you have a pattern for your dolls pleaseReplyDelete
If there was enough interest in my dollies for patterns I would love to publish them. Alas publishers and the public seem less than thrilled with the idea.
But THANK YOU for your interest. If anything changes I will let you know.
Thank you so much for your prompt reply.ReplyDelete
It is a pity but never mind.
Could you advise me please,are the arms and legs of your dollies stitched or glued,they are so neatly done that I cannot tell.
Replying is the least I can do! I do stitch the arms and legs but the secret is using the 'fasturn' tool. Works like a charm.Delete
Thank you,once again.Delete
You are very kind to share your "secrets".
You are welcome Gillian. Maybe you will share a photo when you're done?Delete
