Hand Stitched Spiral Samples
Machine Stitched Spiral Samples
Sunday, 25 November 2007
I have had a idea for the final piece and will be emailing Sian at some point to see if it is viable, it's fun and wearable! I have also booked my place on the Summer school so get the cat walk out as I hope to be able to sashay down runway whilst precariously balancing said object on my head!!!
By the way - 30 days to go on deadline and next weekend is too busy to contemplate with visit from In-Laws, Take That gig at O2 and children's activities taking up most of it - I wonder if I can fit in some stitching between them all? So why am I sat here typing when there's work to do...

Monoprinting Papers and Fabrics
Coloured Papers with Monoprinting
Using the hand coloured papers I monoprinted using acrylic paint and a selection of spiral impliments - card, a wire egg cup, a wire whisk and a variety of printing pads with spiral designs.
Fabrics with Monoprinting
Taking a selection of the fabrics I had dyed earlier I used acrylic paint mixed with a stabilzer to allow the paint to stick to the fabric and be washed if necessary. Iused the impliment mentioned above to create patterns on the fabric. I also used fabric pens to doodle on some of the fabrics.
51 Days to Deadline
