Finished the cover for my Watercolour, Zenatangle and stitch journal. I decided to choose a handy A5 size and will probably make the back cover by transferring the original watercolour design onto fabric and pick out a few details in stitch. “Before” and” after”. The final Feather/leaf was done using backstitched outline couched threads and bullions. I then under stitched in Fly stitch I think it really was the right choice for the barbed effect between the veins. It also catches the light in an interesting way. When I finished the motifs I was going to just add some padded oval satin-stitched outlines to echo the leaf and sectional shapes but Kantha was the better choice for me as I enjoy it so much. So, there you go – one cover front.
I hope you are all enjoying your creative time and I’m looking forward to viewing the results!
