Color Inspirations – Silver & Dusk

Find the duskier elegance in cool, dark colors with this Silver and Dusk color inspiration for your embroidery designs.

Butterflies and bright designs don’t always have to be neon and pinks. Find the duskier elegance in cool, dark colors with this Silver and Dusk color inspiration. Dark, dusty tones have a soft touch when done in blues. Mix in deep blacks for mystery, and a hint of purple to keep it from being too gloomy. It’s a great way to transform otherwise too-cheery designs into something more elegant. See how it compares to the original.

The Sinister Stitch Chronicles

Mandrake

Ever since you facebook followers voted on dark fairy tales as our next special series, I’ve had them on the brain. That’s why it’s so perfect that this showed up in my inbox from Freedom of Stitch: a fantastic new project called the Sinister Stitch Chronicles.

Sinister Stitch is a mixed media embroidery project composed of two parts: an Exhibit (which will debut in October 2011) and the Chronicles (airing July through November 2011, with the feature film compiled at year’s end). Featuring 13 Ancient Poisons in Mixed Media Embroidery, it’s a fantastic look into the darker side of needlework, mixed with the fantasy, lore, and legend of old. The first chapter has come out, and I think it’s going to be a really amazing project.
