I was so ready for this part of this Module!!!
Loosely based on the Pomegranet line drawings.
The first sample was stitched on cotton...which was fine with these stitches as they are all flat lightweight stitches.
This one was based on the Tonal drawings from the photographs of natural light & dark tones.
I used the photo of root of my miniture willow tree....very weird close up!
I could'nt find the cotton I'd used so the following set were on Calico.
BLOCKS OF PATTERN
We had to change our colour values too hence the Folk colours....It was based on the Modern art blocks of colour painting!
The Calico is perfect for these set of samples as the asked for stitches are pretty heavy-weight when worked.
And the final sample.
My favourite design as this is based on the section of star sky my star sign is based!!
And it was done on holiday!
Right so now ready to start the final exercise.
AN EXPERIMENTAL SAMPLE!
Am away to look at my design from the strips which influenced the collage, as a starting point for this larger than 25cm and using my ingenuity, sample!
I'll post back with the results when I'm done...tut day job sure does get in the way!!
