Class Projects















Since I have to be home with the dog, it was the perfect opportunity to take an online class. The following samples are from Textured Surfaces-a class from http://www.fibreinform/ given by Lynda Monk and Carol McFee. It's a good one with tons of information.
The idea is to build up surfaces with things and layers of paint to add depth. It's amazing how they change.
I found that there are lots of textured pastes out there and used one called flakes for the greenish piece. Inks also work well.
After strip piecing this, I didn't like it and threw it in a black dye pot-too dark. This seemed the time to experiment with it, so molding paste, then ink, then gilding cream, and maybe it's OK now.

These samples are really interesting. I had been thinking of taking this course and having seen these may well do so next time round.

Those just cry out for a little bit of bead embellishment, don't they? Make my hands itch to get a hold of them. LOL Gorgeous!

You have done really well with these samples Sandy, they all look wonderful - even the overdyed piece turned out well.

Brilliant set of samples, Sandy, especially the last one, I love the depth you've created with the really dark colours an then the pale flower on the top.
Many thanks for your lovely comment on my Oct PC for the CG.
