Fruits of the Season, 3

For me, the easiest way to get a "sketchy" look is to go over lines 3 times. The first time is the line you "want". The second and third lines should waver around and not follow the first line exactly. This is the back side with 2 lines.
And the front side with 2 lines:
Back side with 3 lines:
By the time I get to the third time around, I'm all over the place and really loosened up. The front side with three lines:
Now, the stitching on the front side requires attention.

Everytime I see this type of stitching I think of you! I really love how you combine the use of line with the texture of the repurposed fabrics!

Yes, Sylvia, at this point, I'm sewing with the paper side up. Now that I've got the outlines in place, I'll be stitching on the fabric side up soon. And thank you all for your encouraging comments.
best, nadia
