Completed Tree Fragment Series
I promised that I would show you when I completed the Tree Fragment Birch piece that I showed you last week. I stretched the background fabric around a canvas and fused a piece of brown paper to the back to cover the fabric edges and staples. I ended up gluing the birch tree down with soft gel medium. I liked the idea of using stitches but I thought the silk fabric tree was just too fragile and I was afraid the stitching would tear it apart.
Here you can see the finished birch tree and the backing.
These are the two other pieces in this series. I was really rushing to get these all done because I am putting them into the Uncommon Threads exhibition at the Bigfork Cultural Center in September.
Here are all three pieces together. I photographed them on the floor but you get the idea. So if you’re in the Bigfork, Montana area in September, make sure to stop by to see the exhibit.

They are all lovely and I’m glad you didn’t stitch the birch. That’s my favorite. Good luck at the exhibition! Are selling them there, too!
Thanks Marilyn, I’ll keep my fingers crossed 🙂
Agreed – the birch looks good with no stitching – it’s a wonderful piece of art. The trio complement each other beautifully when seen side by side. Good luck with the show (and sales!).
Thanks Lyn! I sold a few pieces at this same show last year so I hope to do the same this year.
Very nice autumnal trio – hope it’s a great sale
Thanks Lindsay! I do like autumn colors 🙂
I like all of them Ruth. I like how the top left one flows of the canvas. They do go together well. I hope that helps to sell them.
Thanks Ann, maybe one person will buy all three.
They all look great, Ruth 🙂 All different but all tie together well 🙂
Thanks Zed! We’ll see if I get any takers 🙂
Gorgeous. These combined with your other pictures will be a great contribution to the exhibition. I hope folk will appreciate them and buy.
Thanks Antje, these are for a different exhibition than the landscape ones. I am hopeful that I will sell some pieces.
