Paint the Mountains

I finished a new badge today, and I tried something new on it, with great results!

It’s a thread painting of the mountain from Princess Academy, one of my favourite books.

There are little dark grey houses on the mountainside, and the pink Colonial knots are the miri flowers that bloom in the warmer months.

After some deliberation, I decided on a grey backing, as pink would have matched the cover of the book.

I’m really happy with it, and I’m considering re-designing the other two badges to be thread paintings too. Currently they’re just symbols from the books on plain backgrounds, though I have a few ideas at hand…

Anyways, see ya!
