This piece of wall art was made with a variety of secondhand yarn, some secondhand mesh fabric and an upcycled sturdy canvas frame. The light grey mesh fabric is semi-translucent and most likely used to be a curtain. The yarns are mainly cotton and wool-mix and came from a variety box of yarns from a person giving up their unused stash, as well as the local recycling center.
The image on the canvas is created by using a punch needle. The different fluffy or flat sections are made by working from the two different sides of the canvas. On the working side, the flat and embroidery-like stitches are created, while on the back side, tiny loops will form. The punch needle can be adjusted to different lengths, making some of the loops shorter or longer and therefore creating higher or lower carpet-like sections. By leaving some sections of the artwork free, the piece becomes somewhat transparent, so that any wall color behind the piece can subtly shine through.
This medium sized piece of art works great on its own or integrated into a larger gallery wall. Due to the motive, it also works great on or above a plant shelf, in a sun room or hanging on a colorful wall, which will lightly shine through the semi-translucent windows.
