Textile Tantrums

I am obsessed with fibres, thread, cloth, paint and all things textiles! Unfortunately I am also a procrastinator extraodinarire who spends more time reading, surfing the net and admiring the materials than creating! I struggle to translate my ideas into textiles - hence the tantrums!

Thicker threads / wool / braid was couched onto a piece of lutrador. Mainly natural fibres were used with a small bit of syrnthetic. In the gaps between couching I did various free machine stitiching. This was then painted with dynaflow in purple and yellow and heated with a heat gun when dry. I really like the colours - not my usual taste.

    I love all your samples Leanne. Didn't know which one to leave a comment next to but I think this one is probably my favourite. I like things that have been zapped.
