This October the Embroiderers Guild are exhibiting members work with the theme of page 17 of your favourite book to inspire members to create a piece of work for the Knitting & Stitching show at Alexandra Palace.
This is my piece of work.
Colour, design and shape as well as composition.
I particularly enjoy producing work which reflects the abundant wildlife around me.
I love birds and envy their freedom. Herons I find are graceful birds even when flying despite their unusual shaped necks.
This piece of work uses scraps of fraying silk, Free Machined Embroidery & on gold wrapping paper from a box of biscuits.I like to use recycling in my work as much as I can!
I have been working on making this lampshade and recycled lampbase with a seedheads as it’s theme.
The base is an unusual liqueur bottle weighted with marbles!
The lampshade is painted and free machined stitched. The shade I have made from scratch. Great fun!
More autumn seedheads in different colour ways.
Free Machined Stitching on painted paper and discharge medium and using alternative colours in inks and Brusho.
I like to think outside the box on a lot of my work and experimenting with colour is what excites me the most.
Understanding colour and the colour wheel and what colours work is at the heart of creating in most media.
Love this app! Helps those who worry about drawing and painting in sketchbooks. Very useful tool.
