Richard Plantagenet (2)
Today in part two I show you the start of two pages. The picture above is a page from the book of Jan Messent, which gave me the idea on how to portray clothes.
In the sampler is inspired by the tablet weaving. The stitches I used are: running stitch variations, backstitch variations, Pekinese backstitch and chain stitch. The last one is called a sneglesting in Danish and is a variation of the Coral stitch. If you happen to know the English name for this one, please share this with me.
Since this is a book about the life of a king it needs also to have so special materials, which are king-worthy. First I drew and cut two of these strings of paper and folded them together to see if it could work.
And as I told you before I have been on the look out for special materials and found the next items on a craftmarket. Cutted two strings and folded them together. In my imagination this could be a braid on a special garment.
That's all for today. Enjoy yourself during the weekend and I'll see you soon.
