When I needed to pick a project for my final of color theory class, I knew what I wanted to do – an abstract portrait of my mom in acrylic, framed in an embroidery hoop. Unfortunately, my vision and my ability to paint didn’t synch. sigh.
I used a very thin tape to tape the lines, but it didn’t peel cleanly, so I had to clean up the lines, which made them messier, and then the “c” didn’t fit in the frame well. Lots of problems.
But I still loved the design and the concept. So I rendered it in teeny tiny cross stitch.
And I lurvs it. I love the colors, the design, and the execution. I plan to design one that is a “portrait” of my stepdaughter. Soon. Lots of things to do. 🙂
