I'm going to blog about my Sketch a Day group.. but as mine aren't really sketches per se I shall call the blog posts Fibre and Thread - after all that's what I plan to use for them :)
Week 2 - In the Sea
For the last week or 2 I've been fancying doing some fishy picture panels.. a whale (inspired by Hundertwasser's bathroom whale).. some mackerel, starfish, maybe an octopus. SO I started off with the whale..
|Finished.. unless I decide to add some F M machine embroidery|
Then I ended up getting sidetracked :) Looking through whale images I found loads of gorgeous whale tail images.. and a lovely video on youtube - 'how to draw a whales tail' .. I kind of followed it:
|using free motion machine embroidery..|
|and a felting needle and fibre |
instead of a sharpie..
3"x 3" stitch on felt 'sketch'
I was really having fun now! And decided to do an alternative whale tail doodle :)
|silk sari appliqué with F M machine embroidery|
|I always like seeing the back on machine embroidery.|
It's a give away that I forgot to put the lever down when doing her 'whale tail'.. it's all loopy :)
I enjoyed playing with this :) Think this is going to be good for me!
