3.5 x 5 inches. One of my dandscapes.
The background came about by chance. I poured on gray-green silk paint and then ran some rivulets of the white medium over certain areas. This erased the gray-green in stripes, but the silk was still so wet that it blended nicely into a nice effect of rays of light.
The stem is a piece of hand-painted ribbon (here’s how) and the rest is regular Gutermann sewing thread that I have teased into fluffiness and stuck down with acid-free glue. I stitched the tiny seed pods with skinny pieces of hand-painted ribbon as well. There’s some hand-sewing in pinks and purples underneath the fluffy stuff. I just wander the thread around in a rough circle; it doesn’t matter much because it will be only glimpsed through the fluff.
Make a wish and blow!
