The Strata Series has developed much like the In Box series did...a series of experiments on a theme. The approach to stitching has been the thing I've varied the most...sometimes trying to meander on a basically horizontal line, changing the color of thread in "tiers", trying a free motion repetitive design, creating "brick" or "stone" layers, blending into the background and contrasting with the background. Here, on Strata X, however, I think I've found the approach I like the best...it incorporates a little of all of the above. I basically "doodled" into the "strata"...trying to make the result look like the cross-section of the earth on which the series is based.
