The final part of Octopus Treasure Cave came out yesterday. I had intended to finish it this weekend, but you know how things go sometimes.
I did get one of the four sides done. Sorry for the terrible pictures (yay flash) but there are about nine different colors in the big scallop! I'll get a better picture when I do another one.
Then again, I don't know if I'll do another one. At least, not without changing it. I have to say that I'm not a big fan of this part as all the elements are kind of weird. The blank spaces to the right and left of the beads were supposed to be something like spiderweb roses... in the ocean? And the shell looks an awful lot like the Shell logo with the bold orange backstitching. And I don't really like the shell stitches either, they look pretty bland in that brown color, and not very shell-shaped.
I mean, I work in the oil industry but I'm not THAT fond of it!
I'll try making the outline brown instead...
YES, this is much better! The shell is outlined in brown Petite Treasure Braid, and the small shells are restitched in a pinkish beige Kreinik. The small shells still look like blobs, but now they're SHINY blobs and that makes them awesome. :p
