Title: "Swan Song"
The original photograph was scanned into Photoshop and the colors altered. It was printed on cotton fabric with an inkjet printer. The photo was backed with fusible and then sliced vertically, before attaching to a similar color background. Free-motion work outlines the contours of the swan and wide stippling accents the tranquil water. Zigzag free-motion stitching was done on the nesting area, while multicolor threads were used to give the illusion of movement in the grass.
