I've made a start on a new page for the Fabric Journal.
The Goldfinch is finished and I have another sampler page on the go but I'm sort of hooked on the Shisha embroidery at the moment.
I'm working this one in a large hoop as its easier to do the shisha
This time I've coloured the linen to give a background.
This will be lots and lots of colour.
Now I'm covering it with shisha embroidered daisies. Lots of bold bright colours. Really enjoying this.
Car boot tomorrow,we've been waiting a long time for this one to start, the field has been so wet he was unable to put one on until now.
The weather is supposed to be nice, just hope we have the energy to get all round. lol
Oh MY, what a lovely surprise! I have never seen anything like this! Both paint and embroidery? Stunning! I hope you show us what you got at the car boot! I would so love that, we have none here.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous colours! May I ask how you colour the fabric?ReplyDelete
I use the Promarker pens they are great for paper and fabric, they have a fine and a thick end. loads of colours.Delete
Thank you; I'll have to look for these.Delete
Oh my, this one is going to be so colorful and cheery. I can't wait to see it finished.ReplyDelete
Another beautiful page taking shape. It will be such a stunning piece of artwork when it is finished.ReplyDelete
That is amazing. Love it.ReplyDelete
Lovely...How is the cat doing?ReplyDelete
Never heard of this process but it looks absolutely stunning. I can see why you're in love with it.ReplyDelete
"Shisha"? I thought shisha was a kind of pipe smoked by Turkish men in the back rooms of smoky cafes. Your embroidery is coming on nicely Briony. I look forward to seeing the finished article.ReplyDelete
That is so cool!ReplyDelete
Really effective, your combination of shisha and colour.ReplyDelete
That looks great...what did you color the background with?ReplyDelete
Oh this is delightfully clever!!! It looks brilliant!ReplyDelete
Love this kind of work !ReplyDelete
Love the design. Really neat. What did you color your fabric with?ReplyDelete
Good hunting at the car boot sale. Pictures please. I love seeing treasures.
I took my tablet into Crafty Club on Monday, one of our ladies is a big fan of yours. She was telling someone about this, and I hadn't seen it.ReplyDelete
That's so pretty and I love The Goldfinch too, stunning work. Your fabric journal is going to be a treasure. I do hope that Princess is on the mend, it can't be much fun for her with her leg bound, poor puss.ReplyDelete
Interesting way of doing this. Love the colour you put there before starting to stitchReplyDelete
Really beautiful work. I have Indian pillows with those little mirrors and they are constantly falling out. :/ReplyDelete
