Normally I work digitally and I love it for so many reasons:
- Ctrl+Z (right?) so easy to edit
- No storage
- No mess
- No need for a lot of space
But, at the end of the day, working digitally can not take the place of working traditionally. I love working with my hands and having a tangible product that I created by hand.
Over the past 3 years, I have been searching for a medium that could alleviate the issues I have with working traditionally. All 5 of them.
Embroidery checks off all of the boxes so I am circling back to it. Right now, I am working on finding a technique and/or a style that pleases me.
Above is a piece that was done based on the current style I am working in digitally. Below is a piece that it is more traditional. Do you prefer one over the other?
I hope you will follow along with my journey.
