It's so lovely to have some new visitors to my blog. I've also had the chance to check out some of your blogs too which has been a pleasure and a privilege.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend; I have been having rather a lazy Saturday on the laptop, perusing blogs and watching Mona Lisa Smile.
It has been a much needed restful day but, I feel, still productive as I've seen lots of ideas on other blogs that I'd love to try!
Here is a frame I did a while ago as a raffle prize for an event at my son's school. It was for a boy named Aaron who told me he liked basketball and played for a team called the Wolves,who play in blue and orange and his number was 5.
This is what I came up with for him and he loved it (thank goodness).
The 'A' was painted in Phthalo Blue acrylic then I painted a white line border to attempt to make it look a little more like a shirt! Letter buttons spelling 'WOLVES' in orange with a blue 'E' were stuck in a curve at the bottom of the 'A'. I used some orange gingham fabric as a background (I was swithering what to use
here as I needed to keep it quite masculine). I wanted to make it look like his name was taking a shot with the basketball so I put three basketballs on to show the motion of the shot (each one made by wrapping wool around a circular shape with black embroidery thread to make it look more like a basketball). The net hoop was made from an orange pipecleaner with lengths of black embroidery thread crisscrossed to represent the net.
