All of these were still out after the audition phase of "Reaching...." so that's been a while.
Hanging around the stage door...
|Trying it out on a silk background|
There is one particular line in a border that I think may need softening. I pulled some of the fabrics from the piece and made hexagons, just to see if that would work.
Nothing wasted though, as the mix of rock wall fabric, hexie fabric, and silk with embossed black flower fabric is a terrific blend.
It seems like an abstract of a scene to me, and uses colors not common in my work. This makes me stretch and engages my senses.
The strip of blue-ish fabric is my hand painted piece from Reaching's poem fabric.
As I made the hexagons, I realized once again the value of cropping a print. The yardage is beautiful, but cropped into the hexagon shape, brought it into a tiny little piece of art. Sewn together like this, it gives me the feel of a tiled patio with a stone wall and trailing vines.
Do you go around like this in your creativity??
