|Value placement guide|
No pattern but I did find something that may help. I know I shared this before, but I don't remember when and was unable to locate the post. This photo can be save and then printed to use as a reference for value placement. In this layout the border is 2 squares wide, where as Shadows Fall is larger and has a border of 3 squares.
Like I said yesterday, start small to learn the technique and to train your eye for value.
Thanks for the questions.....happy stitching.
