Here it is, as promised! The rosehips by the shore... transformed into fibre art.
I did the stitching on a very tough canvas-like fabric called Buckrum. It's under glass in a dark cherry wood frame. It's amazing. But the glass glares so bad when I photograph it that you cannot see the art.
I think it looks really sharp with the black matting. It brings out all the black threads.
I stitch-sketched all the focused foreground and left all the blurry background unstitched. I then pushed the berries and leaves and stems forward with a blunt tool in order to create a trapunto effect. I then flipped the piece back and pushed the background deeper back by stretching the canvas with the same tool.
Nice. I like it.
But now I just want to make more! : )
