Watercolor Heart




Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThis is a Shepherd's Bush design that is stitched on 32ct linen with Au Ver A Soie, Silk Moire and Threadgatherer Hand-painted silk it is a total delight to stitch both the design and using the real silk thread...my favourite...





Photobucket - Video and Image HostingI finished my original one of these and gave it away as a gift...so I have no picture...but I had enough thread left to do another as it is only tiny...all pictures are my second edition...I had it professionally framed but it looked a bit plain when I got it back without the handpainted mounts (mats)...





Photobucket - Video and Image HostingSo I decided to have a go at painting my own...as you can see on all these pictures...it is not perfect but I was pleased with the result for my first time doing mount (mat) painting and I enjoyed doing it ...





Photobucket - Video and Image HostingI have tried to do a close up picture so you can see it better but my pictures are not so good at showing the true colours and the beads in the flower centres. I used a small dull gold pansy flower charm on this as I did not have another silver heart...I do like it with it very much as I had this framed in a dull gold frame.

Both are so pretty. I think you did a great job painting the mat and the gold pansy is darling. Bravo.

Your hand-painted mat is delightful! And so satisfying to have your own artwork - congrats!!

Every bit of the finishing of this project is stunning! The painting on the mat too. I think it's very brave of you to try this!
