Valentine 3 and some logs
I suppose everyone would be shocked if I said I was working on some piecing. This is background I am working on for one of my tangled textiles ideas. (I have a few different ideas, so this might not be the one I end up posting)
Of course, the next job is to dye the fabric, which I will do using the dilution method and two stages.
That means I will dilute out my brown stock five times and use these to dye six pieces, then I will dilute out the black the same way and add it in reverse (ie lowest dilution of brown with highest black and so on)
Hopefully, I will show you what I mean in the next week and my results. I want the fabrics to have lots of texture, so we will see how I go. I am no expert!
Just a short one today as the power has been on and off due to thunderstorms and it took me a long time to get this done. I did clean out my studio during down time however, so that is a plus!
Nature is the inspiration for all that is beautiful in art.
