Ah, another opportunity to depict my Scottish heritage. My grandmother was forever embroidering Scottish thistles on handkerchiefs and table cloths - anything she could get her hands on. I have a few left, but they are packed away somewhere as I try to get my house into some sort of shape to be able to move. I would have liked to use one of her embroideries.
Here, instead, I have just drawn a thistle, with the word Scotland, The background is blue for the flag of Scotland - the flag of St. Andrew. I used inktense pencils.
Thought I'd share the project that has had me obsessed over the past weeks. I started it 30+ years ago and finally finished it this week. It's too bad the camera can't capture the sparkle from all the sequins. Now I have to figure out what to do with a Christmas tree skirt when I no longer am able to put up a Christmas tree. Oh well. Nevertheless, I had so much fun doing it, I've started on another.
Have a sparkly week.
