Thread painting


This is a photo (of my mini dachshund, Bella) that my daughter digitally altered in Photoshop in an Andy Warhol style. The background is shades of fuschia and her body is a wonderful conglomeration of limes, purples, oranges and blues.

I printed the altered photo on fabric, using my ink jet printer.

Originally, I was just going to outline the colors (you can see it here with the purple), but it was just boring. So I started thread painting with the lime green thread and it just popped. I will definitely post the finished project when it’s done.
