Castle Page for July and the Sad Tale of June's Page
Carmen has received her July page based on castles so I can show it to you. It is based on a photo of Nunney castle that I found online. It's an inside view of the ruins. It's all done with machine embroidery with the techniques I learned from Carol Shinn's book. I really liked this technique but it shrunk much more than I thought it would. Because the book pages are supposed to be a certain size, this was somewhat of a problem. I had to add an inch to the bottom after my first attempt turned out to be too short.
