Book Description: Everything, from a walk in the park to an exotic trip, can provide inspiration for textile art. See how to record your experiences in sketchbooks, journals, and photographs to create personal narratives that become beautiful stitched-textile pieces. Acclaimed textile artist Cas Holmes discusses such techniques as creating layered collages, “sketching” in stitches, and working with composition and color. The result will be unique—uniquely you!
I thought that this book was very well done. It was also very thought provoking for me as I never thought about creating art in such a way. I am a more of a “kit” person and never really thought of designing my own projects. this book changed my mind! While the photos were amazing, I thought the authors text and stories she includes is what made the book worth purchasing. I found it very motivating and inspirational.
