Landscape Backgrounds continued

I have been meaning to post about the stitching that I added to the backgrounds for days. Every time I sat down to do it I realized that there was one I had not taken a photo of. I would then get distracted by something else. Finally got my scatty brain into action!

The pictures speak for themselves. Lots of easy straight line stitching. The colour and the choice of thread do the work.

I did change the stitch size on this one. Making it bigger as I moved towards the foreground, to try and portray some depth. Not sure if it works or not.
Next time, the focus of each piece.
What would you put on these backgrounds?

  1. My favourites are the bottom two - I don't know what I'd put on them I'd have to look at them for awhile(although the second to bottom one is singing a song about a red barn and farm animals - maybe a duck pond). :D

  2. Those are really pretty. I really like the 5th one down.

  3. I was thinking about you when we were at the lighthouse beach. The beach is rocky and the whole area was full of stacked stones.

    I love how you make the stitching part of the background, really flows nicely and love the last piece, simple but effective.

  5. I think the ideas of what to add are limitless and I love them all, but most particulalry the last one and the rolling fields-looking one.

  7. I think I like them all plain... they evoke some thoughtful processing and moods for me. But I love the blue and yellow, but the solid blue... yum. Quiet, moody blues, an d you've blended the others tones spectacularly. Perfection!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
