Carnival, the Beginning
I wish my creative mind would get active more often. A few days ago I got out the graph paper (very old fashion and takes a lot of time 🙂 ) and began playing. Things just fell together and I am now on the way to a new original design that will actually get off the graph paper stage. The tentative title for this piece is Carnival. It is a four-way bargello design. I went through my limited stash here in the motor home and actually had a colorway I could work with. It looks bright and with some metallic and beads it will sparkle. This all came about because I didn’t want to start anything new this close to the beginning of Liz Morrows Mad Miters which is scheduled to begin on the 24th.
Here are the threads I am using…… The colors just never show as well in a photo as they do for real. I am using a Watercolor with a metallic and four values of floss. I also plan to add some beads, just where I am not sure but I feel real good about where this is going.
