I got slightly diverted from my creative path again yesterday. I was looking again at the lovely things Jude had sent me, I just couldn't appreciate everything with one look. When I saw these two particular pieces they were just crying out to have sections cut away and embellished.
On this photo you can see where I have cut. I have removed one of the solid areas that has 9 little circles in, edged the cut edge with buttonhole stitch and embroidered the centre with a needle weaving bar. There are quite a lot of images here but I wanted to see how it looked with different colours/patterns behind it.
On this one I cut away the little flower which is more visible in the second photo. I definitely think there are possibilities here to push this further and these little pieces will now go into my 'sketch' (that's a joke) sample book. Oh how I wish I had amazing sketchbooks.
