A New Class

I started a new online learning class a couple of weeks ago, run by the very talented Karen Ruane.  As you know I love embroidery and have in the past dabbled a bit with watercolours, so the idea of having a ledger to record stitching samples and other beautiful design methods really appealled to me.    I can't give too much away as the course is still running but here are my first two pages:-

This first exercise was in colour matching from a chosen image and then with progression through to stitched samples using specific stitches.  I  also added some collaged images and silk sari ribbon.

I had a piece of textured wallpaper which I liked the shape of and thought it would look good with some tissue paper, gesso and white paint.  I also added a bit of lace to make a nice textured piece for my ledger.

I'm just about to start the second exercise so will post when I have done my pages.

Looks like an awesome class. Your first pages looks wonderful. Love the tissue paper with the lace - great texture
