This piece was started in Photoshop and printed at Spoonflower in grey scale. Using a variety of paints and inks I layered in the base colors. To increase the depth of the piece I will layer in colors with more inks, paints, etc. I love doing this technique although it is a bit scary adding the additional paints as there is no going back.
I have been having a lot of fun stitching out with a variety of colored threads. The Baby Lock machine I have makes changes threads a breeze and I no longer avoid color changes like I used to.
