Product description

Synopsis

Master the textures and shapes of topiary, hedges, walls, paths and water features, to produce beautiful miniature gardens that are blooming with flowers and bursting with colour. Specialist techniques and simple instructions combine in this practical guide that inspires the reader to create their own textured, three-dimensional designs on canvas. From the spectacular reds, browns and burnished gold of autumn to the vibrant greens and refreshing blues of spring, these exquisite embroidered gardens encompass a variety of styles and historical periods - there is a design here to suit all tastes and abilities. Step-by-step instructions guide the reader through the appropriate stitches and techniques needed to achieve these stunning effects. The techniques covered include canvas stitches, stump work, ribbon embroidery, knitting and wire work, each one is easy to follow and fully illustrated with detailed line drawings.
