WIP Wednesday...

Some of you may remember that just prior to our move in May, I was working on a long, skinny piece, that had started its life as failed long, skinny piece that I was going to hand stitch. It didn't work out, and I had left it languishing. I was looking for something "fast" to finish before I had to pack up my studio, but apparently, it wasn't fast enough, because I didn't get 'er done!

So last week, I thought I'd drag it out and finish it.

Since you saw it last, I added some lungs. But I reallllly wasn't feeling them, even though I stitched them down after this pic was taken. 

So I took out all the stitches, repaired the holes left behind with black and navy paint (and filled in that piece right under the lungs); and then decided to make some new lungs. 

First, using double sided fusible I fused to a scrap of green and drew a rough outline of where I was going to be cutting on the lungs.

Then I fused the other side to the actual lung material (in this case, hand-painted paper)...

And when I pulled them off the backing paper: ta da! :)

More on this later!
