A few days ago I posted Ellen’s stitched version of Quiet by Kimberly Santini. Here’s another totally different interpretation of the same piece by a different Ellen. 🙂
Same canvas. This time stitched in an all over pattern with one thread. It’s magic. It’s as though we are seeing the sweet kitty through a screen or piece of lace. Darling.
This technique works great to showcase a beautifully painted canvas. Just remember to keep your thread very light. Two strands of Accentuate or a strand of Bijoux work great on 18ct. Consider Kreinik Very Fine (#4) Braid for 13ct.
Here’s the pattern Ellen used on Quiet.
Thanks to both our Ellen’s for sharing their art, and to Kimberly Santini for painting her muse.
