What a lovely day it was yesterday !
No, no sun to be seen
(well ... maybe a minute or two ...)
but we were inside
"We" was me and my dear friend Wil
she explained to me a certain known technique,
she refined for her own art-quilts
(Wil's work on the "Art Quilts in Nederland" exhibition last May)
It has been quite some time since I used my machine.
( I did a lot of hand stitching lately, inspired by Jude )
First here was a lot of preparation
in several steps
painting (with diluted acrylic paint)
ironing "vliesofix" (wonder under)
but in the end I could start on my dear PFAFF
There's still a lot to be done before this try-out will be finished
because I need to do some burning too
Ha, it's so good the weather will be fine tomorrow :
I will be burning outside
(the fumes are not very healthy !!!)
I will probably use parts of this technique in my own work.
Might find some inspiration in the garden ???
Wow ... these colours !
love what you did with all that color. interesting technique and gorgeous Iris. i used to grow those flowers but they have gradually disappeared.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
