Over the last couple of weeks I've been keeping myself busy practicing embroidery on paper, adding stitches to inked paper and filling pages of my art journal with simple designs, playing around with both thread and paper cut outs to create minimalist collages. It's been a fun practice and also a nice break from doing bigger paintings that require more effort, energy and emotinaol input.
Oh, hey, here's my art journal and some designs that hide inside its pages:
This piece was started back in January but I couldn't bring myself to finish it until today when I decided to use it to practice my stitching and just add simple patterns to it. You can also see short video clip of how ink texture was made below (I didn't film me doing emroiderery since that is pretty awkward :))
