Stitch


Here is a close up of the stitch I would do if this was to be a finished piece, I tried stitching and it was very difficult to see the edge of the design, so I tried a gold quilters pencil around the edge of the design much better, I have only stitched a small area, as I did not want to waste my Madeira FS thread, and this is going in the sketch book, but I know I like the effect of stitching the negative space, I like the colour choice, so will record this in my book, for future reference.

fantastic colour and texture! I love the precious FS thread - gorgeous.

These samples have all turned out really well Carol. The colours and textures are stunning and that stitching on the corner has really set the piece off. I think this paper/fabric combination and technique would make an excel.lent book cover

I am finding it very interesting how you come up with each new idea. I wouldn't have thought to add stitching in this way...thanks for opening my eyes.
