Italian Holiday from Sketch to Stitch (part two)

Ok, now I have a simple idea to play with.

more torn papers.
Next step was to find a simple motif from the original carving and make a print block.

Now to mix both ideas using paint, ink , bleach and some silk papers.

This is the one I liked, even more so once I changed the colour.

Next problem is to stitch it as a panel so I'll leave that for the next post.

I love the bottom two piece. It's great to see their progression and how the design came about.
