These pretty nasturtium flowers are boldly climbing through different fabric prints in a sunny garden! I made the original piece using an Oshie style technique with puffy, stuffed elements covered in fabric, with embroidery floss vines. Oshie art is a centuries-old Japanese craft, which I got interested in after purchasing a beautiful Oshie piece in Vancouver, BC. :)

Oshie is a unique collage-puzzle of sorts, where the picture is made up of tiny pieces, each individually covered with fabric over a puffy batting inside, then glued back together. Historically scraps of kimono fabric were used.

When I do oshie style art, I create a picture on chipboard, cut out each element, then "upholster" each piece by gluing quilting cotton fabric around it with a cotton batting underneath to make it puffy. Then I reassemble the picture like a puzzle, gluing all the pieces to a backing board. It's fun! I got into it before I knew how to sew very well, and it started me on my path of loving fabrics. :) There is a quilting technique called trapunto which creates raised, 3D effects with areas stuffed with cotton. Maybe I'll try that sometime!

This is a PRINT of my oshie nasturtiums, not the original work.

Custom printed and shipped directly to you by my printing partner in San Antonio, Texas USA. I chose this printer for their superior quality!!!

You will receive an 8x10 giclee art print of my original artwork on highest-quality heavyweight archival fine art paper with fade-resistant, pigment-based inks. The print has a white border for easy framing. This beautiful, thick paper is softly textured just like watercolor paper, and frankly, with the crisp, bright colors, it looks just like my original piece. Basically it's top of the line!

And of course, watermark will not appear on your print. :)

This print would look fantastic in a kid's bedroom, baby nursery, or your own special space. Be inspired! Surround yourself with art and feel happier. :) Or, give the gift of colorful, unique art that speaks to the dreamer within.

Thank you for supporting an independent artist business. I appreciate each and every order. May it bring you joy!
