full pink moon

Finally . . .
my piece for Bea's Dog in the Hole full moon art doll challenge. This time I did not make an art doll but instead made a small textile piece.

Oh my, Deborah -- as always, I LOVE the hand-stitched appearance of this piece. The colors are lovely! The yo-yos, beads and lace -- all lend a look that I love -- almost "shabby-chic" (said with admiration!). You didn't say -- how big is this? If you say it's an ATC, I'm in awe! It's so perfect.

I just love this piece Deborah. Love how the beads spiral out from her face. The yo-yo's really add to the piece overall. I love pink now that I'm older, for some reason. When I was younger I was into red more. Who knows.LOL

Deborah said...

Thanks! This piece is not an atc. Originally I had envisioned it to be larger but it is about 6 inches squarish.

Nice! I was trying to make a Pink Moon piece - but it wasn't working for me. As you know! Thanks for stopping by. Your pink moon is lovely. :-)

Dear Deborah...you Pink Full Moon composition is so intriguing...I would love to be able to hold her and examine her closely. The beadwork is prayerful...one bead one stitch at a time slows down our hearts and hands. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

What an inspirational piece! The face and yo-yo's caught my eye first and then I notice all the other lovely embellishments. I love working with yo-yo's and it is so great to see them used in up-to-date projects. My friend is going to show me how to make pieces so maybe one day I will be able to create something as lovely.
