Triceratops Project - Part One



These beautiful colors are some I am considering for the color palette of my new stitching project. 

I am going to be embroidering this triceratops.  This is from my Dinosaur pattern.  To compose a scene to embroider, I have cut out the triceratops figure, the text, and some trees and foliage: 


 I also cut out two different volcanoes; one that is active - starting to erupt! - and one with the sun or moon and clouds around it.  I don't know yet if I will add either of these:



After I select all my motifs to embroider, I will carefully arrange them on my cutting mat and tape them in place.  Next, I will lay my fabric over them and trace the motifs onto my fabric:



Then I will be on to one of my favorite parts of a stitching project, selecting the floss colors!  I have already stitched a T-Rex from this pattern {you can read about that here} and I want the floss colors I select to match that project. 


The yellow, red and oranges will be perfect if I choose to stitch the erupting volcano!
