A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Experimenting

I've been "playing" with my embellishing machine today, and produced this piece. I haven't used it that much lately, and really enjoyed just experimenting, and letting my intuition lead the way! I decided to make my Journal Quilt for March using a similar technique, but won't post a photo just yet. I'll wait until it goes onto the Yahoo cqg site next month.
I randomly meshed the pieces of fabric onto some white felt, and then outlined areas with either black or very dark grey wool. It does look a bit like stained glass, and when I held it up to the light, the colours really glowed. Maybe I will experiment further, and try to build up a simple image instead of just the random colours.
