This was the 5th of 6 sessions this year but actually my last one as I will be in Florida when the next one happens.
I've written about these sessions in January, March and March again, May and July.
This session was about using the fabrics and papers we had made during the other sessions as a starting point for inspiration and designs. The fountain in the photo above has been the inspiration all year but I have really struggled with it as I didn't have any definite images I could use as focal points in any designs I came up with. I wrote about this problem here.
However I decided on the first day to just tear up papers and fabrics and stick them down on a large piece of Pelmet Vilene (Pellon Peltex) and see what came to me. I should have taken photos of the process but didn't. On Friday once the piece was dry I started looking at what I could do with this background and Hilary suggested cutting up slivers of one of my gelli print deli papers. I put Heat'n Bond on it first and then cut it up and ironed it on.
This is it with all the raw edges.
This is a rectangular canvas that has some stamped seedhead images using one of Hilary's stamps.
The course is being run again through 2015 so you could sign up.
Thanks for stopping by.
