old jeans with ravens

theme at the 3 muses this week is blackbirds...
i took this leg of an old Jeans and stenciled some ravens with black acrylic onto it.
now this should give me some hours of stitching...
i plan to fill the gaps with colorful elements,
the ravens will get some White sashiko stitches around them.

here you see my work in Progress...


  1. Exquisite art piece, Johanna. Like the Jeans-background.

  2. Ganz bezaubernd, viel Spaß noch mit dem Aussticken. LG, Valerie

  3. OMGosh. I'm in LOVE. Both the stamping and the stitching made me smile and take notice of what you are doing to make this scroll. I'm really in love with this. Did I mention that before (grin)?

  4. I do hope we will see the finished piece, Johanna, so far this is amazing but like you say "many hours of stitching!"
    Love the Take a Word piece, too!!

  5. Love the ravens on the denim, so pretty! Hope you'll show us the final work. :)

  6. This is gorgeous if I were you I'd do it on some new jeans and wear them...awesome work.

  7. Be sure to share this when it's complete! It's going to be a true work of art, Johanna!

  8. Was für eine geniale Idee. Auf der Jeans gestempelt sind die Raben sehr deutlich zu erkennen, hätte ich nie für möglich gehalten. Bin schon gespannt was Du noch damit vor hast:-)
    LG anja
