Spoiler Alert! Cute Baby

Embroidered Photo Baby M
I'm a sucker for cute kids, ditto little furry animals. Got lucky with a friend's willingness to let me embroider a smartphone pic of her little sprout. It's to showcase customized embroidered photos I'm offering in my Etsy shop, PegasaurusArt.

Embroidered Photo Baby M, detail
Tried to keep it simple with first an edit on Snapseed, playing with filters and bleaching out color. Then on to the box of scraps to see which fabrics played well together with my theme (kid's an angel, of course). The rest was simple hand stitching and beading to complement the overall look.

The finished size is 5" x 7" so it easily fits off the shelf frames.

Own It

Crone, mixed media journal page
All right, Ladies, no weepy woe-is-me-I'm-showing-my-age monologue. This is for those who take the passing decades with a grain of salt and maybe a shot or two. Yep, skin wrinkles and weight accumulates...if you're lucky to live that long! So rock the gallows humor already.
I'm not quite at Crone-hood yet but I will relish a good cackle now.
