hand embroidery, pulled thread
Victorian Roses Wall Art
Texture is a very easy thing to achieve in embroidery. Many stitches can be used. Stitches such as French knots, bullion knots and lazy daisy give a raised appearance to any embroidery. Some techniques have filling patterns that create texture. Pulled thread has many fillings that create texture and a play of light. This design combines pulled thread and surface embroidery to create a textured design. You can use the colours I chose or use your own.
