Hi everyone
This week I wanted to draw a peaceful, thoughtful design. I went with a silhouette style because of its simplicity, too much colour inn the design made it feel cluttered and buzy. I tried to add colour in the form of hair extensions, small details such as an earring but every time my friends came back that the simplest unadorned version was the one they liked.

The colours above are a suggestion, however theres no reason why the black has to be black like a shadow. If you wanted you could mix it up and have it a colour to match the room you want to display your sewing in.

Happy stitching
