While surviving our latest heatwave, I’ve been hooking away on Grumpy Owl’s feathers.
It’s time to begin seriously thinking of how I’m going to do the background. Regular readers here will know that this is seldom a straight forward decision for me…..so I need to get it underway long before the actual hooking begins. I know many teachers stress choosing the background before hooking even begins, but my brain doesn’t work that way. My vision of the piece evolves with its creation.
how about purple blues?….better but too dull…….how about turquoise blues with a dip dye out to the edges? I like that but not the even control of the dip dye. I think my imagination wants something a little wilder…..maybe….…use both purple and turquoise blues….with an aura of the lightest blue.
Yes that idea definitely has possibilities. But no final decision as yet. I keep think he may be Grumpy because dawn is approaching and he’s tired…..so do I need some sunrise colours? ….or it’s dusk, and he’s just waking up? This is the fun part. I love digging through my stash looking for inspiration.
Happy hooking everyone. Thanks for stopping by.
