|Meadowsweet, 2010, Kirsten Chursinoff|
I tried something new with the Meadowsweet. I made my usual background out of a hundred or so scrap pieces, but then I added colour with Jacquard Textile paints. I painted after most of the stitching was complete. You can see the glowing effect around the blossoms. I darkened the area just outside of the stitched blossoms.
French knots (in my loopy and loose way), appliqué, free-motion, couching.
The plant does have red stems, which are fun and rather vein-like.
