Going for 'icy' with a touch of sparkle on December's collages. That magical feeling of the first snow creating a winter wonderland.
Dug right into the stitching this week and figured out a different way to use the silver thread to add a little metallic shine, stitching lines that look like little bursts of light.
While adding the silver thread bursts to this panel I went back and added a couple more to the first 2 panels as well as adding more stitches to the ones that were already there to make bursts that were more visable.
On the last Monday of 2023 I made this last collaged panel of my December Concertina Sketchbook.
These monthly concertina books were challenging at times and more time-consuming than the Monday collages I've done in previous years but lots of fun too. It was especially satisfying to see each finished strip on the last Monday of the month.
Now the challenge is to figure out how to bind all twelve concertinas into a book, of some kind and to decide how I'd like to approach my Monday collages in 2024.
Completed 4 panel concertina
I hadn’t added any stitching to these end-of-the-month leftover scrap collages until now but this one collage you see below just seemed to need that extra touch.
