I have planned three pieces of work to plop into those frames (I will get the goddesses framed). This was the starting point for the first piece.
Nice I was happy with it. Then over the past few evenings I have taken it up to the house and done an hour or so of hand stitching on it.
The piece now has a very different feel because of the strong “journey line” through the centre and I don’t want the leaves to cover up my stitching.
So – there will be no leaves. I have tried a variety of other “inclusions” on top of the stitching – but none of them speak to me. So I am contemplating just leaving it as it is and letting the stitching speak for itself.
This is quite strange – as I don’t usually do things in quite such an abstract way ….do I?
Please excuse the colour of the mount board – it is in fact cream – although the rest of the colours are not to bad – I think I forgot to set the “white point” on the camera.
Close up details.
Um – the focus is not the best it could be, the chiffon and organza layers appear slightly glarey under the flash of the camera
