more and wondering......
before i forge ahead....i am wondering.
i have used colored pencil on the area of
the mountain ridges, bled it with turpenoid. on
the far right, did this ~after~ i'd stitched, so
colored pencil is on stitch thread too. have
this feeling that it is kind of "cheating"...
but i didn't want to put fabric there, as in
applique a piece, even silk gauze, which was
tempting...and maybe i still will do that...
but i for what ever reason wanted to stitch it
but also the floss was too defined of colors.
thread i used is some very fine weaving silk that
Martha the weaver had thrown out...kind of a
neutral almost wheat. in the midst of all this,
i am thinking of dyeing threads, silk threads,
even for this cotton muslin stitching...i like
using it a lot...different quality makes it good
for diffused images.
so, halfway through the day.
