Here is today's piece, the second in the sub-series of mid mod/scribble stitch pieces that I began yesterday. I like the simplicity of this piece and I'm really diggin' scribble stitchin'.
This one began with the painted osnaberg layered on top of blue gray dye painted batting. I stitched around the circle, on either side of the swish and along the blue lines with black thread then I stitched the background heavily with rough, angled lines in linen colored thread.
The balance is a bit weird, but it's holding it's own. The swoosh and circle create the focal point and the lines do their best to balance it and add a bit more interest to the energetic yet serene scheme.
I love the absolute simplicity of this piece with it's bold swoosh and circle and delicate lines. It's so simple and peaceful. I'm enjoying this stylization so much that I've got several larger pieces designed in my head adding to the overcrowding and angst!
That's all till tomorrow,
