I had a plan for the next few steps of the Spruce street home portrait
. And plans usually...well....they sure do love change...
First I tried different fabrics in many different layouts. Here's one that I sort of stuck with.
|the only thing definite in this layout was the mustard fabric for the house|
|tracing paper overlay to see how it would look|
Then I decided that I need to thread sketch the house first and then play with the background fabrics.
|here's option number one, and I committed to the tree here|
|tried playing with lace|
|switched grass and sky again|
I think that I am committed to my layout now. Especially since I added the dark green plastic netting to the grass. How could I resist using it???
|final layout for now... only the house and the grass are set in stone. or are they?|
|cool view eh?|
If I am brave enough, I will start adding some hand stitching today and decide on the strength of my commitment.
