The Secret - A Fibre Art Mixed Media Piece

This has really been SUCH a fun week for creating!  I don't know what it is, but I have just really enjoyed making stuff - even more than usual, which is saying something seeing as making stuff is my favorite thing in the WORLD to do.  Ever.  Just say'n.



The Secret


I decided to try something new tonight and I created a fibre art piece.  I have seen these done by many mixed media artists and I have even been fortunate enough to be gifted one, but I had never made one like this, so I was totally inspired when I saw the Gingersnap Stitching Challenge!

The Secret.

Can't you just hear them whispering and giggling about some scandalous gossip?  I totally can.  They are such a funny little couple with all of their silly secrets.  But, as the house staff, they do tend to know just about everything about everyone, so LOTS of secrets are to be had around there!



The Secret (detail 1)


These two know it all!  They've got the scoop on every sweet and naughty thing that has taken place on those acres of land.  And they simply CANNOT keep them ENTIRELY to themselves, so they share and giggle about the latest news together!



The Secret (detail 2)


What they always seem to forget is that there are other eyes in that house.  Other ears.  And other whispers and giggles.  And these two have their OWN little secret...at least they still THINK it's a secret!

Tee-Hee!!!!

Supplies:

Stamp:  Scrolls Work Ma & Pa 
Ink:  Momento
Fabric:  From the various IKEA curtains and panels we bought and trimmed to size
Hardware:  Various

What a fabulous stitched piece! I adore the image, the stitching adds just that perfect hint of color, and your little tale is scandalous (at least, in my interpretation, LOL!) Thanks so much for playing along at Gingersnap Creations!

These fiber works can be very addictive...when you create you touch the fibers...and they touch you back. Imagine and Live in Peae. Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
