Chapter 7 Sample 3 Notes
I attempted to arrange 4 layers for this design but in retrospect wished I'd chosen a darker shade of tulle for the third layer as it completely disappeared because it was too pale. I tried to 'bring it out' by using a thicker stitch- whipping the running stitch. I deliberately chose an estoile based and hoshi based motif from my cut and fold sheets because these were shapes, that most inspired my early efforts. While I was pleased with the intricacy of the design, I felt the colours I was drawn towards were too similar to Sample 2 and need to expand the palette I'm using for the remainder of the exercise.
