Sketchbook Challenge #2 ~ Opposites

Progress of my Feb. sketch"book".  I got Stephanie's hand print while she was here, she is on the right side and mine is one the left for the opposite sides of the brain.  I am doing the work on this as opposite as possible....like I have already stitched around the outside edge {usually the final part of putting a quilt together}  and I am doing the quilting before more embellishing is added...

The quilting on the left bottom is 'earth' and on the right top I have started the 'sky' . As for the opposite areas I think I will go with 'root' and 'fly'.  They were the more interesting 'opposite' words to 'earth' and 'sky', that I could find, not to mention they fit Steph and me.

Non-opposite areas are:  1. I am using the back of the shirt for the backing, so that isn't exactly opposite....and 2. Steph's hand is encroaching on my side because she is not all left brain. 3. the tree is mirrored on both sides, not sure if that is considered an opposite.

  1. It's looking great. And I love your total 'opposites' approach - adding the things that usualy go last first - what a great way to really carry through the theme.
