I promised I would be back to show you the completed textile piece I was working on since my last post and here it is.
As I mentioned previously, this is a request from a friend who wanted it as a gift for a friend of hers and I know she will be having a peek at this post so, 'I hope you like it'.
The techniques I used are detailed in a previous post entitled 'Flowers' .except that the flowers here are made up of my gorgeous gold crinkly metallic fabric (which I am in love with and only have a little bit left ) sandwiched between two layers of organza ,one red and one pink, and the stems are not green but stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
My gorgeous gold metallic fabric (did I mention I was in love with it) was a small piece that I bought from a stall at The Knitting and Stitch Show in Harrogate. I have no idea what it's called so I can't replace it. So I have decided that I am going to keep it all to myself and make something with it to hang on my wall.
I have just bought a book on the works of Gustav Klimt because I was fascinated by the colours and patterns in his art work. So perhaps I can use his work as inspiration for a piece of textile art using my crinkly gold fabric.
Thank you so much to those of you out there who have been kind enough to leave comments. They are much appreciated.
Bye for now. x
