Mixed Media Experiment

 21st March 2021


Hello, it's been quite a while!! Unfortunately haven't felt very creative and have found this lockdown quite difficult but the end is in sight.....



I have had this book for quite a while and decided to do some experimenting.....


....strips of a variety of fabrics were layered on calico and backed with 'stitch and tear' for stability....


...these were machined down and more details added, threads and lace...


...the background was painted, I used acrylic but wished I had used my Ko in Or dyes as the acrylic made the hand stitching quite difficult....


.....layered some yellow silk and free machined to represent buttercups then addd daisies, mostly using free machining....


.....I think the hand stitching improved the texture. 
Fairly pleased with the result and liked the background.


I have also made a variety of birthday cards but forgot to photograph!!!

See you again before too long I hope.
