Fibre Fever Pages.

This is the finished woven picture from a few posts ago.
This month I had to make a page for Maureen and her theme is trees.
I wanted to make something different so I made the background that I had shown earlier.
The trees are made using small chopped up pieces of different colours of green fabrics-stitched between 2 sheets of solvy-then washed to reveal the tree tops-which I then stitched to the background after I had added the trunks.
I did some free machine embroidered grasses to add a bit more texture.

Below is the page I received from Ritva--which has a beautiful hand stitched butterfly and lots of beads and the large butterfly is printed on the fabric with more stitching added.
I love it Ritva.

I love your trees on their woven background - that technique has lots of possibilities - and the butterflies are gorgeous, especially that handstitched one.

Your trees look wonderful on their woven background. Great technique, thank you for sharing.

Love the butterflies you received from Ritva too!

These pieces are both beautiful. I love what you did with the trees. I'm a touchy-feely person so I know it would be a piece I would HAVE to touch!!

Your trees look gorgous Doreen, and sit perfectly on the woven background. Very creative. Love the butterflies too!
