Just Finished! Renew and Delight.
The start to my adventure into mixing embroidery with painting has led me down the path of renewal and delight.
They are both 5 inch circles ready to hang on the wall or mount on a shelf. I decided to wrap the hoop frames with cotton thread instead of painting them, and I am really happy with the result.
I really fell in love with this process more and more as I continued to work on these two pieces. It is a tedious practice, and I definitely learned that less is more and to think simply when designing the stitched pattern as well as when choosing my color palette.
They are both saturated in gorgeous color and texture, using a variety of mediums including acrylic paint, graphite, oil pastel, and cotton thread and are 100% original work handmade by me. I have so many ideas coming to me after finishing these two that I am already starting on several more to add to the collection. If you'd like to bring one of these sweet little guys home, you can find them HERE.
