This Thanksgiving weekend I still struggled with my design. I pulled out all my bits and pieces to see what would work into the piece. I painted lace and cheese cloth. I found a great lace that has an open modern design at JoAnn's. Very fun to paint and blend colors across it.
Though I actually did not get any sewing done I did toss down some colored bits on the main ground and I am pleased with the color combinations if not the actual placements.
I don't have a "show goal" for this piece so I will only be showing small peaks in case I submit it to a show that has a no visuals clause. Plus since I am still changing the design a bit, I can play all I want. Just know that I am having fun with some of the Ghana batiks I have collected over the years.
Have you worked with your Ghana batiks or are you saving them for that "perfect" design? Let me tell you how liberating it is to cut into the fabric. I am having a blast seeing how I can get them to work and morph together.
