This time, I'm combining the colour palette challenge at Scrapfriends with the technique over at Scrap Your Story - i.e. stitching. I'm finding myself becoming more and more inclined to want to use stitching in my pieces. I really do love the tactile effect.
Here is the colour palette from Scrapfriends:
Admittedly, not a colour scheme I'd lean towards at all; but I was more than pleased with my final result:
I was really thrown by this colour combo, truth be told, especially when had all the paper laid out in front of me, with no idea as to how I was going to put it together to make it work!!
I used stitching on the left edge and along the yellow polka dot paper, as seen, and then also on the doily o the left.
I used a pale yellow and a mustard colourd paint dabber on the doily to give it a shaded effect. Below is a close-up of the stitching I used on it; and also the hand-drawn 'stitching' around the edges of the doily.
I have had this silver-grey tuille for YEARS and I loved the soft feminine effect it has created on this piece.
And that is it! Thanks for looking! :-)
