...get it? MARCHing?!
As predicted, the calendar days continue to pass and what do ya know- it's a brand new month. Time for a new series!
Last month I revisited my #FashionGrindJLG series from April 2020. The main reason I chose to do this was to get back in the same headspace so I could create some new coffee commissions from a gal that saw my work at Port City Java, also- the coffee smells divine, I love to drink it and ya'll know I love some fashion!
For March I knew I wanted to continue with my fashion focus- but I wanted to try something different. Then it came to me...paint with wine? WINE not?!
I am also continuing with the additional sewing project on the side. I was originally gonna continue down the rainbow spectrum...but then I started thinking about St. Patrick's day, and also all of the green all around me as everything comes back to life and- GREEN it is!
I started the same way I did for my two previous pieces, watered down acrylic paint on cross-stitching canvas. This time I also stitched a few scraps of some fabric that I hand-dyed waaaaaay back in grad school and have been hoarding 'for special'. (if you know, then you KNOW)
I also added some wool and couched some nice yarn on the piece for some texture...which there will plenty of when this is done!
