I have been having vague ideas about playing around with making some interesting fabric backgrounds that might then be used to stitch, collage and/or layer.
(Notice the vagueness of the outcome?? - hence the title, Not Having a Clue (What I Am Trying to Achieve.)
I went to a friend's house the other day and played with some different ideas.
An old Softcut stamp I made. The rubbing was done with the same oil pastels.
I have no idea what will be colourfast and what won't. The pieces are currently lying around being given time to embed into the fabric. I will iron them to see if that heat sets them. The I will wash them and see what worked and what didn't. Eventually.
All a bit hit and miss really.
But doing something, even if it isn't the tapestry I am supposedly working on.
The day wasn't a complete loss, I did actually play - and I had a lovely social day with my friends, one of whom provided a delicious lunch!
