I am doing a sort of study on color tinting. You know, its when you add color to your stitchery with either crayons or colored pencil. This is a design by
Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill.
It was lots of fun to do!
Then I decided to try it on a design of my own. I began with crayons, coloring in the whole background with white and then adding the color.
Then I added the stitching and some colored pencil detail. I couldn't stop there and ended up using watercolor pencils.
When I am finished the whole thing will be heat set with and iron, pressing from the back onto a piece of scrap muslin (in case some of the color comes off)
What do you think?
