crayon paper the end, maybe?

The second paper is finished! Embroidery, beads, buttons... Chain stitch on the left and blanket stitch on the right. Then an odd little feather stitch in the upper right.
Green herringbone, red and pink French knots, red cross stitches and green and lavender closed feather stitches. I loved working on this paper. My hands felt a little waxy as I worked, but I liked the finished weight and texture a lot. I like the muted and blended colors very much.
I had a girl in the Studio this AM (the homeschoolers Tuesday morning group) who was curious about what I was doing so gave it a try. Look at her luscious eye. Great!
