STITCHED UP

























I'm having a go at some embroidery. I have been running
a workshop making hand made journals. We started with
colour washing the paper and then decoration with stencils
then stitching into journals .
I had a lot of paper samples left over and so decided to try 
a bit of embroidery. The image above is the first one and 
the one below I have just started and will add more images
as I progress, I'm hoping to finish in ten stages.

The first image is cartridge paper with acrylic paint and the
second is cartridge paper stained with tea. The embroidery 
thread is top stitch polyester that is normally used on a sewing 
machine and cotton floss skein ( not sure what that means
but that is what it says on the packet )
