Final Art Project Update 3

For my 3rd update, I have still been learning more embroidery techniques. I wanted to expand my skills, so I have used some lace leggings that I cut for fabric to try some new stitches on a darker background.

I did end up deciding that for the final project, I would be turning a pair of jeans into embroidered and distressed shorts. I bought these for $3 on sale, and have distressed pairs of jeans before. I am excited to make these jeans my own!

Song: The Soundmaker by Rodrigo y Gabriela

a. Spanish guitar is the main instrument, with maybe some drums in the background. The song is passionate and powerful, with strength and excitement. It makes my heart beat faster listening to it. The album cover is red and black, the colors of passion, and I can almost see red paint being splashed on a black canvas when I hear it. The thrumming guitar is the major emotion-evoking aspect.

b. The swells and crests of the music are so strong and make me feel so many emotions.  It is a thrilling song.
