stone faces July 12, 2016 Thirty stone stories. One at a time. Love the smudge on the eye. I think I'll add more of that. I'm using a raw canvas on this piece and double batting. The texture is amplified because of it. Adding details by hand gives more character to the stones. My fingers are sore. Each panel has its own story. The background texture is a wavy line. I used black thread in the bobbin to reinforce the little black dots that connect the lines. I started this piece without a backing fabric. And I am not tying and knotting the threads. The back is pretty dang amazing. Maybe I need to add more of this texture to the front too.
