Love What You Do: Mixed media wall hanging

Do you all love what you do ?I can tell you, I love what I do most of the time.
I am trying to make it a mixed media wall hanging.

It is not finished yet. Needs more of that finishing touches.  It took a lot of time to be the above stage. Oh, I loved every minute of working on it. 

first of all I started with paint. 

It was a blast. I had to wait for it to dry. 

Then I started doing running stitches. Watching TV and doing running stitch was just very pleasing. I even forget to eat in time. Want to see the stitches a bit closely? 

The text I printed out, and cut it out .
Remember the other wall hanging I made for my daughter?

I used the same words. But printed and cut out in different order to make this one. 

I didn't stitched it. But, just used mod podge to paste it on to the fabric. 
It needs a loop to go on the wall. Now, are you getting inspirations to make a mixed media art?

A mixed media wall hanging

"Earth Laughs in Flower" Emerson said that. I found it here

The piece is finished only today. The dark blue flower is from vintage denim. The other flowers are from patterned paper.
The denim flower was cut using a petal template. 

I draw and cut it from regular printer paper. I cut 5 petals from the denim and arranged them to form  a flower.

Then pinned and stitched it to the white cotton fabric. 
The paper flowers were cut from patterned paper and sed the button on top of it to affix to the background.  

The quote is stitched with basic embroidery stitch. 
The stem is also stitched using the same stitch. A loop was stitched on the white fabric and inserted a tree brach inside to keep it straight. The loop in the middle for hanging is made with embroidery floss. 
I want to add bead edging to the bottom. I used watercolors on the paper flower to give it more life. 
It feels done right now. 
If you like to get this one, please ask me. I might sell it or might do a giveaway.
