Trip to the Emerald City OOAK

It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessed with The Wizard of Oz since I was a very little girl.
While filling out a postcard with the lyrics, “And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true,” felt inspired to do a painting, but Crochet has really taken off for me as a chosen craft. It comes to me much more organically than drawing or painting. Originally, I had the idea of painting a background, then attaching crochet to it. As I went along, I decided I a full crochet “painting” was what I wanted to do.
I made extra pieces for it during the initial process to hang off the bottom of the original canvas idea, but those have been scrapped and saved for use with a different project. The end result is much less complex than my original ideas, which would have made it far too “busy.” Because I was creating as I went along, it took about 10 days from start to finish (including framing), but it turned out exactly how I wanted it in the end. It is currently displayed in my room. :)

Completed piece is approximately 11×14 inches.

Thank you for looking. <3

Very creative, and like you, I TOO love and have loved since I was little, the Wizard of Oz. I waited impatiently each year for the movie to come on. Now, just plug in a DVD! Wow, how far we have come! I like the idea of a crochet “painting” and will have to try it with something in the future. thanks for the idea and for sharing your awesome painting.
