The final stages; deciding on borders...then add a lizard or two.
I like the dark brown border and inner grey one...but it took me a while to get to this point!!
Left: the start with white cotton and stitch.
Right: the initial paint layers
Left: building up the paint layers and putting in the tones.
Right: more of the same! It's a question of going round and round a piece gradually adding more until it suddenly seems finished....it's like magic!
The border will have lizards on the bottom right hand side too, crawling up the edge. Apart from that, the remainder will remain simple but stitched in a matching thread.
