The Chosen One!

Decision made. 

I am going with the rusty chain and anchor catch.

I have squared up the pic and will mount it on a small square artists canvas.  At this point I think I will print the background and applique the anchor + catch.   I have some lovely breakdown screen fabric with the exact colours ..... can I position the pattern to get the effect???

SEPTEMBER possibilities

September was the month that I ran with a theme of 'old', 'distressed', 'rusted' or 'worn'.  Looking back at the pictures not one jumped out at me.  A bit worrying!  I have chosen more than the normal 3-ish.

Quite like this but it will not be easy.  Will probably have to draw, paint and stitch.

Would probably crop this one considerably - but not so sure.

The softness and the white appeals.  Would mean a lot of stitching again and would like to try something else.

The simplicity of this makes it interesting.


AUGUST completed

This has been a very short abridged challenge this month (August that is).  I opted for the boat and to use the TAP (Transfer Artists Paper) method as I had just acquired some.  Forgot I needed to mirror it for the process so you will see that the boat has beached the other was around.

I have only stitched the boat and am quite happy with the result. It is unmounted as yet as TAP size is American and I need to fiddle with the bought frame.
