FIBRE IN MY HANDS

I've been carding again. I didn't exactly plan to spend the day carding. I can be easily side-tracked by fibre and there it was and now here am I with new batts to show. Sometimes it's nice to have no plan.
In the end, if I have made something, the day went just right. There's fibre in my hands and I'm happy.

DESIGN TOOL :COLLAGE



About a year ago I started playing with Collage as part of my creative techniques studies with City and Guilds. This is a perfect go-to exercise when you are working out image and design planning for your quilt, rug, felting, tapestry... you get the idea.
But most importantly it's really really fun!
Here is a photo (head) of my little rescued starling.
I've dressed her up. Framed her in an oil rubbing taken from a piece of lace.
The lace was a piece of curtain that once hung in my childhood home.
I've added some script (in mirror image) ... pertaining to my little starling of course.
Finally she has been equipped with a sketched version of one of my husbands carpentry pencils.

Collage can be such a fun way to layer personal bits and pieces of your life. And who knows, while you are playing with it you may just create the perfect design for your next textile project.
