we were asked to try create some textile art pieces using the fabric we had previously dyed and different sewing and fabric manipulation techniques.
I started with the couching technique with tassels taken from a piece of scrap garment, I created branch like effect with this and later added leaves with applique and a running stitch. after this I added some dots with paint for some small detailing, I hope to later use this piece to print on.
I then started an applique piece, where I layered a blue piece of fabric with an orange lace material over the top, then stitched into it to create a flower like effect, I also knotted some thread in the center of the flower and added some paint to give some dimension.
I found this interesting fabric with small holes all over it, I decided to use this to my advantage and embroider a small mushroom and some roses and stars onto it, as well as some applique and some painted details.
