Love Heart Update

July 6, 2012

I am not very experienced with painted canvases but I am having fun with this small project.  Most of the heart is done in diagonal mosaic.  I wanted a little change of texture so I decided to do the light purple in french knots.  I love doing knots and this was fun and I think looks better then tent stitch.

The yellow/orange center of the heart is done in a Needle Necessities (now Threadworx) overdyed Krienik #8.  It was left over from a class several years ago.  I used two strands because I am working on 13 ct canvas.

I am now working on the orange background with a shiny Trebizond.  Just plain tent stitch but it is bright.

I am sorry the close up is a little fuzzy but you can see the knots.

    What a fun piece – makes me smile just looking at it. I really like your choices of fibers and stitches.
