The author Martin Widmark seems to be turning out a steady stream of the books.
|Here is one of the book covers|
I have to become very friendly with my computer (which is always tricky for me )since I have to make a diploma for all the little detective that solve the treasure hunt and a flyer/poster that will be sent out to the local schools .
Looking at the fab illustrations by artist Helena Willis I thought it would be a nice project to machine embroider the poster.
So here is my beginning..
|top of picture is a paper copy of the logo that is on all the book covers.|
|I then put two layers of fabric on top of one another .|
first white and then black. then I machine embroider the image and cut away the black fabric
to reveal the letters in white.
|My old favorite sewing machine is the best for this kind of job|
and its always a great day when I can let her out!
I have now attached the machine embroidery to my backing fabric that is the background of the poster.
This is when my eyes need a break and I have to contemplate the rest.
Time is running out and it needs to be sent to printers soon. I think I will have to limit the machine embroidery and blame it on the nasty flu I've had for the last weeks.
