Drum roll please... Ta~daaaaaa!
My homage to the great outdoors.
Purple mountains majesty, the forest and a river tying it all together.
We love to go camping! The Sierra Mountains of Northern California is our place of choice, it's technically called the El Dorado Nationial Forest.We try to go a few times each summer, but it's never enough.
In these squares I wanted to play around with the idea of "painting" with thread, and be more free handed. To fill in every square milimeter. I sketched in the shape of the mountains, the river and the tent for spacing and perspective, the rest was added as I went along. I'm really happy with 34 & 35, I wanted to go out with a bang, so I tried to pack in a lot of detail in these two square inches. I think I did all right, what do you think?
Here is my completed 35 square grid...
SQUARES 12 & 13
SQUARES 34 & 35
