In search of seaweed
I took a trip to my LNS this morning in search of seaweed to embellish the "Judy/Anne" underwater collaboration! Fortunately, Barry, the owner of the shop, is used to my oddball ideas and soon joined in the spirit of the quest.
I may not eventually use all of the threads pictured here, but I think I have a broad enough selection. From top left, moving clockwise, are: DMC's memory threads in two shades of green; Petite Sparkle Rays in a silvery green; Petite Frosty Rays in a brilliant rose and tangerine; and the Petite Very Velvet which I'd already used for the seaweed around which the little seahorse wraps his tail.
In doing a Google image search of seaweed, I was struck by both the variety of shapes and colors which fall within this category. Now I need to play with the threads on doodle canvas to determine which stitches are best suited to enhance the canvas and create a stylized version of seaweed. Stay tuned!
