All Done!

After many months, Aunt Bert's Daisy Garden is complete and off the frame. It is a large mat (26 x 50 inches) and I will be doing a whipped cord finish. Although I used Cara's inspiration, I did add some elements of my own.
It is a mixed media piece with wool yarns, roving, wool strips, and I used metallic ribbon around the dragonfly.
I really like Cara's (of The Grumpy Goat Gallery)whimsical approach to art and I hope I have done her original piece justice.


  1. is stunning. And the close ups are perfect. You can really see the detail and the effect of the different materials. I love it! I only wish I could see it in person.

  2. Dear Julie
    Wow, wow, wow! It is absolutely fantastic! I knew it would look lovely, just from the photos in progress that you have posted. I think you can rest assured that you have done the original piece justice. Many congratulations on an amazing piece of work.
    Best wishes (and much envy for whoever is lucky enough to be the owner)
