Inspiration for this theme was not hard to find. The birth of my grandtwins, Noelle and Graham, 3 1/2 years ago has provided so much joy in my life that there was no other choice for me! The joy on their faces in this pic is so pure that it had to be captured in fabric!
This piece was done using a larger image which was printed on fabric. It was fused onto a background and was threadpainted also to emphasize shading and features. Echo quilting was done. The frame is a wiggly striped fabric that I cut and fused to a stiff interfacing and then modge podged for durability. Noelle's facial features didn't please me so I tried the smaller size which is the above version. Hope this is all clear!
I think I'll give one to their parents!!
Here is the original photo.
