The Wonder of Inside
It begins with drawing, for me- I'm constantly looking at interior organic structures, the repetition of the varied shapes is a source of fascination.
I make a simple black and white sketch, then refine it and shape the lines until they are smooth enough for my liking.
I sent the colorized file off to be professionally printed, then pinned it up on my design wall to let it tell me how it should be completed.
I have some beautiful colors of Marabu art crayons (yay! new art supply!) and used them to shade the interior of each cell, setting with GAC 900 for permanence.
then, dots- there are three separately applied layers of color.
it's only stitched around the edge of each cell- lots of thread ends here!
