Copper River Canyon completed
Mary K. Campbell's piece Copper River Canyon last month and am finally posting pictures. The design is based on an interpretation of the topography of a desert canyon presented in thread and beads on canvas. The beads add dimension and texture to the piece. The black work adds depth. It was taught as a class through Cyberpointers a few years ago.
I added the stitched border around the edges which makes the piece look more finished and complete. I have not decided how to finish the piece. I could add it to a bag or make it into a purse, but it would also be attractive inset into a pillow.
