It probably looks like my bead-embroidered bus
is almost finished, and it is
, but there are still several things I need to do before it it complete (in no particular order):
~Collect more images of Doors
‘ singer Jim Morrison
. He will be the main passenger in the bus, however there is one image of him and his cosmic mate, Pamela Courson
. They are both on a journey to ‘The End’
. This will be the first time I incorporate ‘collage’ images in one of my pieces.
~Glue the painted canvas paper and mirror to the inside of my custom-made shadow box.
~Attach images to the inside of the shadow box.
~Add to the overall structure of the shadow box, so that it sits properly. I would like this to have the option to stand by itself…
~Stitch velcro to the back of the bus. This is what I hope to attach the beadwork to the shadow box with. Then, the beadwork could be safely removed if it ever needed to be repaired.
~Cover the back of the entire piece with blue Ultrasuede.
~Add hanging hardware.
~I’m sure there is something else that I missed… :0
