Do you see the divisions in this project? The areas are not defined by borders, but by stitches and colors.
- Encourage a natural stitching rhythm by examining the structure of complex stitches
- Explore different textures of silk, cotton and metallic threads
Divisions was inspired by an art print, with several distinct areas of color and texture. This project is divided into areas, each with a different stitch texture, making this an intriguing project.
