The Textile Artist.Org stitching challenge
continued for another week
who works mixed media, not only textiles,
had a very "strict" exercise :
repeating a "round" shape in a square (5x5cm)
defining the shape and the negative "rest-space"
in stitched straight lines
(first on paper, later in stitch)
Christine started with a wavy shape and I did that first,
but soon had other shapes too
like a full circle and a heart.
I decided to take some quiet gray as background
and why not bright yellows to go with it ?
my first "sunny" attempt
I noticed on the FB page that many stitchers
couldn't stop at four little shapes.
When you start thinking and drawing
there are so many possibilities ...
so I decided right away to make another one !
nearly there ...
still to do the outside.
a fun exercise.
(especially thinking about "rest-space" !)
