Thread painting

I have been working on my project and making some good progress. Today was a first for me. I tried my hand at some thread painting. Not bad, although I will not be competition for anyone. It was sort of fun once I relaxed. Of course I kept it pretty simple so it was hard to screw up!
This piece also calls for some beading so I have lots of work still ahead of me. This piece is going to be larger than I have been working on lately. Probably a good thing. The larger size poses other challenges but leaves me more options.
I am starting to get ready for my class with Ann Johnston at QSDS soon. If anyone else is going, let me know so we can meet up. I think it will be lots of fun.

Sherryl, she is elegant!!
I would say pretty darn good thread painting if this is a first.
You say it is bigger... what size is it?

Sherryl said...

Thanks Carole. It will probably be close to 35" x 44" depending on what I decide to do about borders.

Wow!! that is a nice size.... lots of room for some nice detail,,,

Yes, elegant is the word for her. Be sure to show us the finished piece.
