I couldn't really concentrate on a finished piece this week but as I was pruning my Silver Birch I decided to draw it & make a collage using it. I stitched over the actual drawing but luckily I'd got a photocopy of it with the idea of doing some image transfer - I want to repeat the image up the side of a hanging with a large version of the drawing in the middle.....
Above is the sample using the drawing - I stiched with burgundy & gold on gold organza on top of the drawing.
The drawing, another thermofax screen idea?
The start of the collage, a way to go yet ;)
Helped along the way by one of our cats - thought it was about time I joined in with the cat pics! This is Sconser, named after a place up the road here, from a rescue place 16 years ago, my youngest was 6m old! She's laying right over the bits & pieces of fabric for the sample & some cuffs I'm trying to get finished & into the studio.
Once I've got my work up onto the walls ready, I might have a clear enough head to make some more. Meanwhile I'm enjoying thinking about it!
I was weeding with a Skylark, & bumble bees in the willow, delightful.
