Today I have explored inktense pencils, pattern and stitch. I first drew the pattern on with inktense pencils. (Inktense pencils are similar to a watercolour pencil but a more intense colour is produced when water is added.) Then I painted over the surface of the material with water which blended all the colours together.
I then stitched over all of the patterns I had drawn.
I was inspired by the patterns found in nature:flowers, grass, bamboo, pebbles and petals.
