This past week has been filled with experimentation and new ideas for a series entitled TEXTILE MUSINGS.
This is the first completed piece using a myriad of parts I created during the week. I painted, dyed, stenciled, organza and silk, paper and thread, tissue and who knows what else! Took some fibrous building items out of the garage and tried those too. Then came the challenge…how to put them together…….?
I wanted a long and narrow presentation…a favorite of mine…and it eventually came together with much layering, free motion quilting and hand embroidery.
Below is a detail of the second piece in this series. I like the painted organza as a “cover” for all that us underneath. I like stitching through it and embroidering over it and think I will pursue a few more “musings” with this technique. The finished piece is 7×40.
