I realize that is extremely dark. The foreground has a ditch full of water, backed by reeds that have turned a gorgeous color! Here's how I have put it together...
That's more blue & purple than pink, but I love the contrast of the purple with the deep orange undertones. Here are the threads I've pulled out.
The mucky-green is the color of the surface of the water. I may or may not use these exact threads, but I put them by my machine and start filling in space.
|Basic threadpainting started.|
I am LOVING this so far. The colors in real life just sing and glow. I think it really gets the feel of that day when I snapped the photo. It's pretty magical. Crossing my fingers... Sometimes when I over thread-paint the horizon, things buckle on me a bit because the sky is minimally stitched. This time, I stuck some of this on the back. It's pretty cool! It's tear-away Sulky Sticky+ stabilizer (though I won't bother tearing it away). It comes on a roll that has a peel & stick backing. great idea! No fusible, no iron. I like that.
And now .... (drumroll please) the winner from is Wendy O! My random draw was done by my 8 yr old ; ).
Let me know your snail mail and I'll mail it out to you! Congrats and thank you so much for you lovely comments.
Alrighty then. Time to do some hand stitches. Have a great day everyone, and thank you again for all the beautiful words. : )
