This is such a happy canvas designed by Zecca. There is so much going on. Great colors, potential for great stitches and texture. The fun thing is that it's all total fantasy.
No rules, just play time.
The bird is an important part of the canvas we want it feathery and fun but at the same time, it is a cartoon bird. Leaf stitches of 2 varieties did the trick. The body is a mini leaf pattern worked in the most glorious shade of Thread Gatherer Silk N'Colors accented with the perfect shade of Midnight Kreinik Braid.
The wing is a different leaf stitch giving us some movement and flow. It's worked in Fuzzy Stuff and then roughed up so that it comes forward more.
A few beady accents and we are done for this week. Who knows where the journey leads next.
