About a week ago, I’ve started sharing on my Instagram and Tumblr one little and very personal project – Stitches and Sketches. Sort of not-so-private diary, where I experiment with the techniques I love in expressing my feelings, or facts about me, or just visually talking about all that stuff people usually do with their planners. No particular intensions, just doodling around with my favorite natural color palette and textures : nature shapes, hand stitched embroidery and simple markers.
I create hand embroidery art on paper for a period of time by now, and always in search for new inspiration and interesting backgrounds. Like, hand embroidery art on autumn leaves featured in one of my latest outfit posts, or Starbucks cup holders hand embroidery art I’ve shared with you recently on the blog.
I feel totally inspired by finding a simple canvas for the new hand embroidery art experiments in such a basic object as Moleskine journal. After I received really great feedbacks from my Instagram followers, that warmed my heart so much, I thought to share these diary pages on TLV Birdie Blog as well.
– Fall planner with no plans. It doesn’t mean I don’t do nothing. Sometimes, no plans can lead to real productiveness and creative results rather than strict plans and eventual frustration about lack in some parts of them.
– It’s all about finding a right place for you, isn’t it? These are the places where I was born, where I spent several years of my life and where I am now, from right to left order.
– Nature is totally the best crush I ever had, and it brings me a lot of real inspiration. Practicing some mother nature curves in different techniques always lead to a great pleasure, relaxation and satisfaction about the result.
All the pictures of Embroidered Diary are collected in my Instagram by the tag #stitchesandsketches .
