Got round to trying something out that has been on my list of 'Things to Do' for ages. I saw some lettering on a quilted panel which used overcast stitch - at least I think that is what it was. (I can't remember for the life of me where I saw it now)
I stitched the letter 'A' using this method then painted just over half the background with white Gesso. Various colours of acrylic paint have then been added over the top. I like the way the Gesso has given texture and a feathered edge where it stops and the calico begins.
Not sure what to do now but I have got a few ideas.
- Treasure Gold
- More stitching
- Wadding and quilting
