I finished yesterdays piece to my satisfaction – I will have to give more thought on the “how to do it” before I embark on a bigger version. If you want to see a detail, it is posted on my daily image blog “The Turning Year”.
So moving on. The next piece has to fit in a frame which I all-ready have. I don’t really like doing work to fit the frame – but sometimes needs must. I have forgotten to note down the dimensions of the frame and will add these at a later stage.
When I do quick designs for a piece of work, I have a crayon that has multi-coloured lead, this is so useful as I feel it represents the colour change in embroidery threads really well.
The next stage was to make the ground fabric. Currently I am using quite a complex layering method to make a background. Using fabric, paper, tissue, stamping, glue, dye, and felt.
The result is a textile which will have (fingers crossed) a depth and richness.
My goddess has made a welcome return – although in this piece she will be in a garden.
