Beauty is on the surface in this inspiring book that teaches hand-stitching and mixed-media techniques. Written by noted surface designer Lynn Krawczyk, The Hand-Stitched Surface offers inspiring techniques and beautiful projects for creating richly layered mixed-media surfaces on paper and fabric to encourage stitchers to slow down and savor their handiwork. Following an overview of tools and supplies, the section on stitching essentials covers a range of basic stitches and how they can be modified: mixing thread weights for textural effects; unique ways to create patterns for hand stitching; exploring color; and tips and tricks for improvisational stitching. The fifteen keepsake-quality projects are perfect for those seeking to disconnect from technology and embrace a quiet, meditative approach to handwork and creating art.
