I have finally got a sewing machine, time and space all working together on the same day so I have all 6 cards (I am behind in) for my years challenge complete. I have had a lot of fun making these. I have chosen a medium to work in and explored the use of them.
Today's is an exploration of crayons, textile paint and stitch.
I used cotton fabric and crayoned the pattern I wanted onto it and then painted the textile paints onto the material. I then needed to iron the paint and crayon to set it into the fabric. I machine stitched the piece with different threads that toned in with the paint.
I was inspired by the strata on rocks and cliff faces which always have fascinated me. The patterns are wonderful.
