Adding colour 

After a discussion in a group crit it became clear to me that colour needed to be incorporated into the design of the houses- i was unsure on how to do this and it was suggested that i combined my embroidery skills with the paper. Above are some images of what i came up with. I don’t like either of them and feel they don’t look very professional- as well as this the stitch on the weak book paper causes the houses to become distorted and lose their shape which is not ideal as they are the main focal point of the display. I feel i need to develop this concept further and consider other ways to add colour- i like the way the thread looks giving a 3 dimensional element to the roof of each house and need to play with this more, possibly not using stitch and instead gluing the thread to each of them individually. It may also be interesting to use a variety of colours rather than just one to make it even more eye catching.
