Bad Weather Activity: Crafty Landscapes

I did my first craft fair this weekend (with Butch), and while my debut featured jewelry and home decor (utilizing natural and man-made materials – see my brand new Five Birch Perch Etsy page!), I want to eventually expand to include embroidery/needlework. I’ve been brainstorming ideas for a while on how to explore the “natural” theme while using synthetic thread, which led to a google search on embroidered landscapes. Like drawing, painting or photography, there are a few ways to approach this subject.

Traditionally (resembles a tactile painting):

By English artist Ann Sharman

Macro (with applique!):

By Canadian artist Kirsten Chursinoff

Abstract (I want one of these tapestries, stat):

By Italy-based Etsy artist nerina52

Informational/Architectural (a fun way to plan my landscaping for next year?):

By American artist Jennifer Hunold

  1. Glad you enjoy my work! Thanks for sharing with your friends. 🙂

    Loved the work by nerina52 – reminds me of paintings I used to make of Midwestern US landscapes. 🙂 I look forward to seeing what you make!

  2. Hi Jennifer! I dd really like your work – and I’m glad you didn’t mind that I was focusing primarily on the landscaping, because your pieces are about much more than that.

    Thanks for checking in!
