I used to avoid projects with backstitch. It was really not my thing and I did not have much experience doing it. However, when you use backstitch it simply changes the way your cross stitch project looks like. It becomes more like a drawing or painting. Abstract cross stitch with backstitch enhances the abstract forms of a design and makes it look more artistic. Specially when stitching a Kandinsky artwork.
This is the brand new cross stitch pattern inspired on the work of Wassily Kandinsky that is now available on the shop.
