I know I stole that line from SNL but a lot can happen in a week. Yesterday I bought a new macro lens for my camera so I can get some better close up shots of my canvases in progress. I just jumped right in without reading the manual so give me some time. I'm torn between two canvases - sort of like the Republicans (although I've made up my mind there). I am also discovering that there are a lot of common techniques in both canvases. So here are some of my shots...
The grapes are covered beads just like on the polar bear's hat:
|Lettuce and Grapes|
The acorn tops are done in the same weaving stitch as the snowman's hat:
I'm not 100% sure about the lettuce, but I'm leaving it in for now. And I used the wrong color green memory thread on the stem for the grapes, but that's easy to replace. I kind of like it . We will see when the other leaves are in.
Off to ride my bike!
