I thought I would share a little of what I am working on at the moment.
More 'wild sewing' and I have been using buckets of this wonderful metallic thread!
I love it... it makes the seascapes shimmer even more. It is a little tricky to sew with on paper cloth but practice makes perfect. ;)
What is paper cloth?
This is paper cloth, these three sheets are laid out on my floor at the moment drying. Muslin is covered in watered down pva glue and then collaged with paper fragments.
I then use ink sprays to decorate the surface.
The paper cloth pieces are cut and sewn in an appliqué type way to a backing cloth.
Slowly the landscape comes to life.
The free stitching makes scratchy grass like lines.
This one is more muted in tone.
For this one I wanted to create a craggy coastline in an almost abstract way.
So, another busy week. I am so happy at all the positive feedback on my 'wild sewing series' Thanks so much to everyone who has commented.
For me it encompasses all the mediums and subject matter I love best.
Paper, collage, paint, ink, thread, fabric, foil, hills, sea, Skye.
