Red Sails
Topic: Paper Embroidery

The assignment was to make a paper embroidery card inspired by a song title. I chose the song "Red Sails In the Sunset".

I'm not entirely sure if I've ever heard this song but it came immediately to mind when I was sorting through my collection of patterns and came across this sail boat.

It was originally a string art pattern but I reduced it to card size and stitched it according to the instructions for doing it in string art.

I selected a teal paper with a faint script pattern and stitched the sails in red thread, the boat in brown and the water in dark blue.

Then I laid a circle aperture over the sails and used Distress Ink on a foam pad to create the sun behind the sails. I added a few streaks of that same color in the rest of the sky for the sunset.

I used brown and blue inks to color in the boat and the water.


I used layers of red and dark yellow for bordering.
