I've been working on a piece which has been on my wall for months. Everyday, I walk in my studio, look at it, study it a while and then move onto something else. I'm using all deconstructive screen printed fabric which is very busy and hard to use. I have a few hand dyes to quiet it down but for the most part, there's a lot going on in just the fabric.
I like using purple and gold together; they are nice by themselves and make the prettiest brown when they touch and blend. The above piece looked hopeless until I turned it over.
This side was so much better and almost looked a bit like trees. I don't remember what I did to get this so it's definitely one of a kind.
This piece of fabric used a sink mat with a stones pattern on it, along with mop strings and some confetti strands.
This next piece used the same things, different amounts of dye color - mostly gold.
I never know what I'm going to do with my prints and usually wind up making too little of one color way. Next time I do this, I will stick with the same colors throughout so I have lots of choices to work with.
This next piece is one of my favorites - done on silk charmeuse; this will be a border.
And here is the wonderful magical mat that made all those great rock shapes.
purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I've also done some screen printing using a leaf shape.
and some smaller leaf shapes.
And of course a tree - a very small part but works well with the rest of the fabric.
I'm still putting combinations together and we'll see what happens.
