Art Every Day, July 6, 2013
Here is today's new piece. I was trying to kill two birds with one stone. I'm shooting some more videos in a couple of weeks and need to make a bunch of samples for the techniques that I'm featuring. One of the techniques is what I call scribble stitching which is just purposely messy free motion stitching. But, as you can see, I ain't too good at it! I thought that I was stitching rather messily as I tried to yield a sketched look but it looks a bit too tidy for the technique. So, I'll have to try again.
I do however like the piece especially how the sun is shining down on the lighter, pinker section of the fabric and there is shadow along the left hand side. I did it all free form, no marking or anything and I used three different colors of thread; fuchsia, bright yellow and light orange. I've never stitched a house before this one. I really like the little scene and the shape of the house. It all just sort of came out as I stitched which was pretty cool. I did the whole thing in exactly 17 minutes.
However, it did not fulfill the important assignment of a sample for scribble stitching so I'll have to do that again. I'll try tomorrow,
