This soft piece of wall art was created with an old wooden frame turned canvas. The frame was sourced from the neighborhood recycling group. The base fabric is a soft pink linen, that used to be a curtain. The yarns that were used to "draw" the image are mostly sourced from the secondhand store and a free to take bag full of unwanted yarns, found in a friends apartement building staircase. Most of the yarn used to create the plant leaves is a wool mix, while most of the background was made with cotton yarns.
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.
This serene piece of art can add a soft touch to any room. It can be mounted on the wall just like a picture frame or simply sit on the floor against a wall for a nice vertical accent. The lush green and warm desert tones of the wall art match well with your collection of indoor plants or wooden furniture pieces. It can also make a great center piece for a gallery wall and add a textile touch to otherwise sleek picture frames.
