Designing more rugs
As I became more familiar with my new design program, I ventured into creating more complex rugs. These three rugs were inspired by photos of antique rugs.
Denise is a very intricate rug and I look forward to stitching it someday. When I design my rugs, I choose a set of colors that, to me, look good on the screen. Once I am done designing it, I then turn to my DMC color chart and carefully check each color to make sure it doesn't clash with any of the ones that will be around it. I change colors as needed and sometimes enlist the help of Cheryl, who has an art degree and understands the color wheel so much better than I ever will! 🙂 I also try to make sure that colors don't get lost when stitched next to another color. Sometimes a color can have the same shading intensity as another and, therefore, disappears beside the other color.
At times, a life sized rug is too intricate to translate completely into a miniature rug so I eliminate some of the elements to make room for some of the others.

My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
