Next I moved out of the prim area and into something a bit more modern day. One of my good friends just turned 60 and his wife is giving him a birthday party next weekend. She only does this at each decade change. I used one of the motifs from Lynn Nicoletti's "Air Guitar" design to create a birthday card for the occasion. No matter how old you get, you can still play a mean air guitar! The card is also over-one on Monaco. The original design was meant to use glow-in-the-dark floss for all the green outlines that you see on my work. So it would look really cool with the guitar only showing in the dark. But I think I it's a pretty nice card without doing that, although I don't know if my friend will appreciate embroidery! I did the electric blue foot rest in x-stitch over-2 to avoid solid color fill-in boredom. Then I jazzed it up with few sequins. The wording is my addition also.
In my last post, I showed an Altoid tin decorated with a mermaid theme, but I had not selected any contents. I thought about it and decided to make a keyring fob from the "Guardians of the Sea" freebie by the Little Sittcher (click here for the chart). And yes, another over-one design on Monaco. Sensing a pattern here. I love the look of these tiny mermaids.
And now I leave you with this quarter's dental office reminder art, the very famous Van Gogh, "Toothy Night".
For those in the U.S., have good holiday!
