The pressure was on for the letter W. Family members - whose also have a last name that starts with W - indicated they were quite looking forward to seeing this letter.
So here it is. Since it's name begins with the word "double" I decided to double up on "W" techniques. The first technique was to paint the background (fabric) with watercolour pencils. Once it dried, I gelled the fabric onto a stabilizer. The second technique was the embroidery using 2 different stitches (including the Whip stitch) and in 2 different colours. (Click on the image to see a larger size.)
Have I met the expectations?
Next, on to the letter X. I never did find a technique or material to fit this letter, so I went with "texture" since it does at least have the letter X in it.
Three textures are included here: a sand resin (green), moulding paste (blue) and a smooth polymer medium (orange).

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
