Face #10

What if I try hand embroidery on top of the pieced background?

I experimented with using 1, 3, 4 and 6 strands of floss to get some different line weights. I love what happened on the back, especially those little running stitches:

Working from the back side will definitely be a future "what if"!

It looks sketchy and cool from the back.

I can't decide between them, I'm scrolling up then down and back again. I like them for different reasons they are way cool!

The underside of life! I think the backside of the stitching is really exciting.
