Paper and thread, so common yet so unique!
This month's inspiration picture over at Papertrey Ink is simply STUNNING! Even if you don't want to be a part of the hop, PLEASE just go take a look at the pictures and automatically you will want to go check out the artist and her AWESOME work!
Izziyana Suhaimi takes embroidery on paper to a whole new level! I had to literally pick my jaw off the floor when I saw her work. Thanks to PTI for introducing us to this wonderful artist.
Now how does one incorporate that beauty into watercolors.? Although I love sewing and have done my share of quilt making and dress making, it has been a long time since I threaded a needle! So my best option was to paint something and this is what I came up with!
I pondered over adding a sentiment and asked my Instagram friends to help me out, they suggested I add a sentiment, so I did! While I was at it, I painted another one and left it as is..no sentiment!
The floral image and sentiment is by PTI and the image of the girl is by Unity stamps. I sketched and shaded the image using a regular graphite pencil and the rest are watercolors.
On Etsy later today!
