Finished picture of 'The Regatta'

Here is the finished applique/embroidered/painted/felt tip/crayon/machine embroidered/watercolour and acrylic paint picture, so a proper mixed media article. It is very big measures   31" across and 26" down.     The colours are much clearer in real life (the light is quite poor here to take photos and I dont feel it shows it to full effect. Anyway I would like to live in the tall pink house on the left, shame they cant make them for real!!

The first picture is  the starting point of bright stripes and then machined embroidered over (I dont have a picture of that step) Mauve,green,yellow,pinky-red and blue.

As you can see from the top picture which is brighter the camera hasn't picked out the zingyness of the colours.


  1. Looks wonderful! You are very clever and I bet that is perfect for brightening up a dull day.

  2. Wow...just WOW!! That is just fabulous!!!!

  3. Fabulous. Just the right sort of brightness needed for the grey day we are having today

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
