Mixed Media Monday~

This weeks theme is: Fruit
I created a pear out of stretchy golden fabric. I had to use a zig-zag stitch on the whole thing before doing any straight stiches as this was super stretchy fabric....which is what I had in my fabric stash. I cut a twig to use as a stem and added some satin-wired leaves. I think I would like to do this again only stamp on some muslin then cut and sew a peach out of that-- or create a muslin pear and use that as a canvas to paint on....or.... just make a bunch of these and place them in a white bowl and stick them on the kitchen table! This pear is sitting on top of a round gold egg stand that I picked up at a craft store. You can see more mixed media pieces here~
