printing...another post is on its way! But until then...with my hex break, I've come up with a few ideas...HA This was how I started this hex project....
And now here are some other designs I've come up with....I know it looks goofy but you have to have my imagination on where fabrics/hexes will go! I am also looking at using black or very dark brown/black for the background...
So, here is one of the designs...Not good...not bad...OK, certainly not good! Did I just say that! I was looking at adding some curves in the piece...again, all fabric would be on black/dark brown/black background (say that 3 times really fast!). The black you see under/over the circle hexes is colored marker in black!
Now I'm getting happier with playing...I added circles.....all the white you see would be black. The 'curve' strips would be in black but hand stitching would be added using thick threads in bright colors to match the hexes and show the 'curves' and lines...just another idea!
and now I think I am getting closer! I added some half hexes.....and a circle
But then I had this idea earlier this week! The wood/brown areas are the background of my table showing through. Those areas will be filled in with hexes. Dark brown/black will still be the background and I'll be adding the hand stitching. The funky cutouts are hexes that are half hex pieces and I may add some single hexes or strips...so I get to make lots more!!!
I like the last two designs....see how complicated this is getting to be! HA! OK, I am having fun in between the frustration of changing my mind...but it's not like I have a deadline for this piece! So back to the drawing board!!!
