The other day I made a cross stitched gingerbread ornament by creating a design on a circular piece of plastic canvas mesh.
I added a red ribbon to the ornament to hang it up with. The red ribbon was attached by using the embroidery needle to thread it through the plastic canvas mesh. This is just an example of the many types of ornaments you can make during the Christmas season. Happy Holidays!
I finally finished my drawing of Irina the cat, and this blog will document the progress from start to finish.
First I drew Irina’s body and then sketched in her fur.
Behind Irina I began drawing in a moon since she is sitting next to the window with a view of the night sky.
It was quite exciting to realize I had reached the half-way point with color in the sky directly behind Irina with a blue violet colored pencil. The twinkling stars in the night sky consisted of a bronze colored pencil that I used to create these formations.
A cherry colored pencil was used to shade in the table where Irina the cat was perched.
It was quite exciting to be almost finished with the drawing as I completed filling in the region around Irina’s legs.
The completed drawing of Irina the cat turned out pretty well, and I was quite excited to finally select a frame of the illustration I have been working on for the last few days.
