Strange Finish ?


I finished the pink poinsettia this morning. I like the altered art that is done with paper so I figured I would try a little with some stitching. I just typed in my word document "Seasons Greetings". Cut the words out sprayed with coffee to color, dried with the blow dyer and glued down on top of wool with the glue gun. I also used some greens that I had from my stockings. I did mount the poinsettia on a 4X4 mounting board, pinned it all around and hot glued some green wool leaves that I cut out. Then glued that in the frame on top of the black wool. I tried for a little primitive look. Not sure what I think but its an idea that I can take and try with some other designs too.
have a good day
