Here is my piece that I had a challenge with my sisters and friends.
This was to be a Quilt made with paper and with the theme of
show us your true colours. The paper I used was some paper that
I used to colour Lutradur and pellon. Its typing paper with disperse
paint on it .. basically its the leftover bits. The mottled piece is the
same disperse dye but you crinkle up the paper and then just paint
on the hills ... and the valleys stay white. This is a really nice effect
when you use it on pieces. I didnt think it was finished and had my
piece on top of a magazine that had the olive bright green... and I thought
ohh that is the colour it needs. I did some hand stitching and some by
machine to sew the green bits on. I did the binding in brown to pull
the colour out. What do you think ? does the dark brown frame it
to much ? like a picture or does it work?
Looking forward to seeing the other girls pieces.
