Good Afternoon Again,
Here is another catch up piece made from more discharged fabrics from last weeks retreat. I had two light blue/violet fabrics, one with a floral discharge design which I silk screened on with one of my stencils and the other with triangles all over it discharged with a hand cut stamp. I layered up the floral strip with a deep violet silk noil on top of a light violet silk gauze. I laid that trio down on the triangle print which was sitting on top of a violet dye painted batting.
I simply outlined the floral print and top stitched around the edges of the fabric it was laying on. Then I stitched around all of the triangles and stitched angled lines between them to push back the background. I like the soft, subtle tones of this piece as well as it's depth.
