I’ve been thinking about collages lately. So what better time than now to start this great collage by ellen giggenbach, Fantail. This is our newest Mystery Class and with 5 lessons it will take us well into May to stitch. There’s lots of time to explore different areas.
The first area we stitched is the far right panel. It is a field of circles and gave me the opportunity to create a solid pattern of stitches. It has great depth and dimension.
The circles are filled with accentuate and surrounded with Jessicas! Lots and lots of Jessicas. They fit perfectly because I had the canvases painted to fit this exact pattern and size of Jessicas. Sometimes I know how I am going to stitch something way before it is even painted. I do love it when a plan works out.
To add a spark of color, some of the Jessicas are filled with beads. Life is better with beads. 🙂
Here it is. Fantail lesson one with lots of pretty Jessicas all in a row.
Wait until you see the swag that comes with this class. Of course there is the matching magnet. That’s not all, ellen g made beautiful thread bags that match the canvas perfectly. Swoon! They are the best.
Of course we have snap trays too if you would like to add one to your collection.
