Wearable Art

I'm working on something really fun for my shop!
Each of these 2 x 2 inch squares with my original paintings will be transformed
into one of a kind of wearable art when I'm done embroidering
& adding some details on them...stay tuned.

Update: Oops! I forgot to mention the little squares are iron-ons.
I used 100% linen and a Strathmore iron-on sheet.

Can't wait to see what you do with these - maybe brooches? I've got some wearable art for sale in my Etsy shop at the moment. Would love your comments.

I know these will be gorgeous - I loved the added stitching to the soft birds. The 2x2 size is so appealing!

I can't wait to see what you do with these mini-masterpieces! Until I saw your comment about the iron-on sheets, I thought they were printed by Spoonflower or a similar service. I'm thinking I need to experiment with the iron-on sheets I bought ages ago...

Great! More wearable art! How lovely! I remember the lovely tiny alpaca silver brooches from San Miguel with the birds paintings. Can't wait to see the new production.
