I love this internet and the people I meet and chat with! Anne Stradal and I have spent some fun time plotting and planning on her latest project, which involves some patterns I had in old file folders from several years ago.
She had mentioned wanting to do water in the same way she did the background on her wonderful ghostly trio.This canvas is so funny I laugh when I see it, and can almost hear them singing "We've Got Personality." The background sizzles!
Anyway, about the fish and seahorse. I really like the way she stitch paints everything, and simply sent her the outline drawings I use for these designs - she did her thing with them, re-arranged them and stitch drew them onto canvas.
From here, she'll decide what colors to use that will look wonderful against the planned background. The threads are already chosen for this part, so go watch the whole project develop at she stitches it. It's always a surprise! You'll find Anne at The Cape Stitcher.
