Ahhh, green. Well our Tangled Textiles Challenge this round is 'green' and the last few days I have been immersed in green
- stiff and able to be used as dimensional elements
- able to be free motion embroidered without a hoop ie they are stiff
- it also makes them stable for cutting shapes, ie the edges won't fray
Probably by now, you are wondering what I am going to do with all this green stuff, and I probably should keep it secret, but I don't think my final piece is really guessable from these fabrics. They are only stage 2 of my piece and stage one I did a long time ago.
Of course, those who know me well could probably have guessed that green + vicki = leaves, lol. In fact, any colour will suffice for me to create leaves, however in this particular instance, I needed green ones.
Here are some of the leaves I cut out today with yesterday's stiffened fabric. I want lots. And I want them all different!
Sometimes I am asked why I use a sketchbook in my work, and here is a great example.
