Background Sampler Up Close
Here we go……some close ups of each area. They are below the descriptions of the areas. I haven’t exactly figured out all the protocol for putting text between pictures. Always more to figure out 🙂
Area 1 has a light overdye in addition to #8 pearl, thus the slight color change.
Area 2 Is a plaid with a touch of metallic.
Area 3 is an oblong cross with a tent fill in.
Area 4 is pearl #8 withe floss couching and then I reversed the threads in the lower half, laying the floss and couching with the pearl. I just wanted to see the difference it made.
Area 5 is all tent with the directions reversed to create a stripe. I think I would like this better if one of the directions was a slightly different shade of the same color. This ia all done in #8 pearl.
Area 6, this is also in #8 pearl. A skip tent with encroaching gobelin. I did part with the gobelin horizontal and part verticle again just to see the difference and left part with just the tent.
Area 7 is floss laid with #5 pearl. I think this would be hard to compensate around an irregular design but I like the look.
I am now working on Area 8 and 9…….
