I'm making bookmarks. I could fill the bookmark form with stitches but I decided to try something different. I stitched the heart outlines coloring book style and filled in with paint.
I'm using acrylic craft paint and watering it down.
The paint acts like watercolors and runs outside the lines but I like the effect I'm getting.
Here's the finished bookmark.
I let all the colors run together. It's bright and colorful.
Now I'm thinking of painting landscapes and then adding stitches. Maybe someday ...
