the color of the month is green.
My scrap bin of green is so full of all shades and tones and variations of greens...
I made 16 this time, stitching while the baby napped at my feet.
I tried them on different backgrounds and in different arrangements... compare the impact of them here...
Background tone makes a difference doesn't it? These are both saturated browns
(That brightly colored one may transition to another group when it's all said and done)
Note all the patterns and tones in the leaves. It's my belief more is better, excess is never enough, use it all, all tones can mix together like it does in nature.
These look like a scientist's study of leaves to me...
I really like the three-d aspect to these, and because they are on paper and have "body" I can play with them...
And isn't that what it's all about??
