Razzmatazz



Registration is officially underway for my 2017 Mystery class. You can read all about it here. There is a peek above and below. I really enjoyed creating this piece - I challenged myself in several ways to make it more interesting for me to design, stitch, and stay amused! I'm happy to report it is completely finished and I'm now working on something new to release at the Nashville market in March! 
  •  Use a color of canvas other than white or eggshell
  •  Leave canvas threads empty to let the color show through
  •  Use a number of straight stitches (instead of diagonal)
  •  Throw in a few beads
  •  Make a more symmetrical design than the last two Mystery projects (Starstruck & Curios)
  
Here are the colorways I created - the original registration announcement only shows five options but I've done two more because the Prickly Pear and Kelsch colorways from Curios were requested. My original design is based on the Appalachia Watercolour and stitched on Leventeen Blue canvas. 


Tahiti stitched on Yellow Canvas - a special request from a dear friend!


Bermuda Reef stitched on Aquamarine Canvas - one of my favorite Watercolours of all time!


Sedona Sunset stitched on Rose Blush Canvas - one of the newest Watercolours 

Fiesta on Brown Canvas (the brown is darker than Sandstone which is darker than Eggshell):

 
Prickly Pear on Brown Canvas - another "Earthtones" option because the Prickly Pear colorway of Curios was a special request after registration was announced. I came up with this and liked it so much, it is another offering.

Kelsch on Brown Canvas - Since I did one of last year's new Watercolours, I thought I'd do another. I chose Kelsch because I've been wanting to design something with it and now I have another palette of threads!

Join in the fun - class starts in March and is easy to keep up with. If you've already signed up and wish to change to one of the new colorways, just email me. I'm happy to change anything until registration ends in a few weeks.

  2. Do you have stitched samples of the colorways? I'm having a hard time choosing.
