Surface Design...


is great fun, but I don't see myself getting out to the shed today. There's still lots of snow in the garden, and I doubt if the Berco Boiler has defrosted itself yet... so I'm staying put and playing with the cloth that I've already made. Like this sample, Lutradur 100 coloured with Brusho. All the colour was added using these flexible little watercolour inks. I'm really quite pleased with the outcome, a sample for a class I hope to be teaching soon, smaller than A4. As you can see, I've added a couple of small pieces of felt, and embellished them with some free flying fleece. I was contemplating adding some stitch, but I'm not so sure now. Small and uncomplicated seems to suit my mood. See what you think. I have to say, it looks better in the flesh... but that's the way of these things.

I always like to see some stitch - but then I'm greedy! Brusho colours are so rich and glowing aren't they?

lol, I initially read the phrase as some "free flying geese" instead of free flying fleece. but then I couldn't see the flying geese (triangles). I like the loose fleece on this piece.

The colors are great and the free form fleece gives a wispy effect. The felt squares adds more dimension. I have purchased lutradur and do need to get the inks. I agree with the small and uncomplicated art, this year.

this pink pleases me so much today...it is completely dreary here in New Hampshire...yesterdays snow being drenched in rain...flood warnings and such. So thanks for this cheerful bit of color:)
