- Finished proofing September's Workshop on the Web (great issue)
- Finished Harry Potter (great ending)
- Finished the text part of the 'Image to Stitch' book (took great effort)
- Put together another of the boards of Val's work for the exhibition (great work)
Here are a couple of the pieces from the Val box. There is so much that I don't know if these will go in. Jane Lemon and I wanted to show some of her teaching pieces and this is a good example. The piece below shows lots of textural snippets, from scrim to lace, embellished on to acrylic felt. It could be zapped to add more texture and this is shown at one end. The pieces could also be stitched down if you don't have an embellisher.
Then the whole thing is painted with white emulsion paint. Yes, the stuff we paint on the walls. After this, it is coated with black Quink ink which reacts with the emulsion to give a lovely blue-grey colour.
When dry, a little gold paint gives that finishing touch. Good, eh?
