Printing and Stitching....

8th October 2016

I had the urge to do some printing today.....

.....used my Gelli Plate....


....selected some items from the garden...


....papers...


.....paint...


....placed the curry plant on the grey painted gelli...


.....a bit disappointing!


The 'ghost 'print', rather like this....





....again I prefer the ghost print...



....not a success!


Quite like these...




....oh dear...


.....better...



....love printing with feathers, painted the feather in gold metallic acrylic,placed on the khadi paper feather paint down and used scrap paper and a roller over the feather  to make the print.



Next I wanted to play with my hand dyed fabrics....


....inspired by Ruth Issett...


....layered 3 orange fabrics over the woven rust dyed, free machined....


.....cut back...


....then I looked at my watch and realised I was due to be at the yarn bombing group....

....Enid has knitted a fabulous seagull...


....I had a hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, delicious!


Home again and stitched my sample using variegated thread...


.....think I might add some hand stitching.

Silk and muslin strips on woven rust dyed fabric...


....free machining flower shape....


....cut back and stitched...


...really enjoyed my day, maybe make cards with my prints tomorrow!
