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.

Beginning with flour and water!






Below is the piece of cotton fabric that I created from a flour and water paste experiment made previously, Here. After painting it with acrylic paint, I cut it in half today and appliqued a few yellow cotton spots and some yellow net over the surface before quilting heavily with shades of blue, green and yellow viscose thread. They are the same size as the two from yesterdays post, 61/2" square, so quite small. I do enjoy working on smaller pieces, they feel more manageable for the detail that I like to add, and of course, they don't take as long to make! Well, not usually anyway.


Two posts in two days!! Somehow, I think there may be a bit more of a break before my next one, but thanks for reading, and have a good week!
