I am packing up my demo stuff for Ally Pally. I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and use my demos to do the last two pieces for the Image to Stitch book. I thought about printing a design on some fine silk, using BubbleJet Set. It's not as good as the ready-to-print silk but OK for embellishing experiments. Then the silk would be applied to a base using the embellisher.
I hit on a good idea for a design. Here's how it went:
I scanned in one of OliverTwists inspiration packs in Silver Birch.
Then I scanned in a drawing of the centre of an ammonite. Drew this when I was having a big thing about fossils.
Used the ammonite pic as a Displacement map for the Oliver Twist scan.
Plan to apply the printed silk to felt and embellish with items from the pack. Possibly will hand stitch with the yarns. Can't wait to get started.
Have been following Dale's Rugby enthusiasms - so sorry the All Black's lost. I love their ceremony before the matches. Someone on the radio today suggested that the French should do the can-can before their matches. The Irish could do something from Riverdance. From what I remember (through an alcoholic haze) of the Forums, the Ozzies would probably take all their clothes off. What would the Poms do? Morris dancing, perhaps - or a little ballet. Any ideas?
