So I have been thinking what I can do that will fit it but not take a huge amount of effort. It is all due fairly soon and I want to have something to contribute.
I have done a thread painting in the past and could try that again. But it was rather small, just a sample for a course I was doing. So I would have to enlarge the image, if only I could remember where I saved it, IF I saved it.
|This one was printed onto cotton and then I just thread painted over the top, a bit like colour by number.|
I have been taking photos of some gum blossom in our front yard as well as at the park and at various places while out with the dog.
So now I have to choose which ones to use. I am going to go down the very simple path - print a picture onto fabric, probably silk as that is what I seem to have packets of, and then thread paint over the top.
I am feeling that it might work with the sort of process I learnt in the Alison Holt workshop. I could paint areas of colour and then thread paint over them. First, I will try the printing the photo method, then I might have a go at the painting the areas of colour method.
I think I will prefer the second as it seems to offer more creative freedom but I need to try both, see what happens.
