The sky threads are variegated rayons, and the brown is metallic! It came in a mixed set and I had no idea there was a metallic in there. I couched some of my new funky fibres from Jesica onto there. ; )
If you saw in yesterday's post, I quilted the spring field with sage green embroidery machine thread. Then I did some silk ribbon embroidery by hand. I put long grasses in the foreground and I stitched blue french knots in the spaces that were predominantly blue. I did that until the blue ran out.
Next - some lavender colored blossoms were added mid ground. There are also purple metallic threads that I seed stitched which really make the whole thing pop, and give it so much depth. Now it looks like something I made. ; )
|photo taken on my phone. not bad!!|
Now... off to shop for a new camera. You know my sweet boy who can read? He dropped the camera and dislocated the entre inner lense casing. It's garbage. Darn. I managed to knock it like a coke machine and made work for a bit so I could load some of my photos for today and tomorrow.
See you tomorrow for TIPS ON TUESDAYS!! ; ) The topic is PAINTING OF FABRIC! : )
