My list of things to do has long included seeing the colorful row houses that one sees in Europe. So for this challenge, I took the structure thing a bit literally and drew a row of fantasy buildings. This was a piece of washed cotton that I ironed to a bit of freezer paper to stabilize it for the drawing.
After I finished the drawing, I layered it with a wool batt and stabilizer on the back. Then I stitched over it with my machine using white and dark grey cotton threads.
Then I rinsed it to get rid of the blue pen. After it dried, I ironed it to flatten it.
I used Derwent Inktense pencils to color in the buildings. Those scissors were handy for snipping threads.
I used these three different textile mediums. Why? Because I felt like it.
This is a bit of a close up of the penciled piece before I used the mediums on it.
And a much better photograph of the finished piece. Actually, it's not finished. I think it needs more quilting. I'll post again after I quilt the sky.
