|Fresh set of holes poked, ready to stitch. Looks like Braille.|
My pile of "not quite rights" is growing. But that's OK. I'm learning. The piece below doesn't quite work. I threw in too many colors and too many patterns. I was trying to work in more of a scene, with foreground and background activity. But I piled it on too high and it's simply too busy and not unified.
|Blooper! I think it fell apart with the blue stars. Among other things.|
So on to the next piece. Simpler grid. Simpler color selection. Trying to strike a balance between wild grids and doodles on a luminous colored base and composing different areas of focus in different places.
|Brand new grid. Keeping it simpler.|
Perhaps I've dialed this one to too simple. We'll see. Not much time to work on this this week because I'm moving on Thursday. Moving is a beast! But I'm very excited about my funky new duplex and the next phase of my personal life.
Ok, back to packing...
