New Work from Barbara James

 Adding Texture and Interest With Hand Stitching

Over the past few years ACN member Barbara James has added more and more hand stitching to her work. She uses traditional stitches in non-traditional ways to add texture and color to a piece. Stitch detail draws the eye to the center of interest or helps move the eye along a path in a larger work.  Here are three examples of stitch details within larger works.
