|A VERY elderly photo taken at Rideau Ferry ON, MANY years ago. I took a whole series.|
I would bet that I took this photo 45 years ago. It was a slide but DH digitized it and I enlarged it and drew me a pattern! I have been hankering after doing something with it for ...about 44 years! I have decided to make a rough prototype and try out some techniques on it. If I LOVE it, it will be 12" x 12" so I shall put it aside for next year's SAQA Auction. I used the Peony Centre this year. Hope they like it!
|In case you forgot, The Peony Centre piece, 12" x 12"|
I have already scoured my fabrics ( I need about a whole week of dyeing! VERY short of colour/value choice!) and chose this piece out of the centre of a pretty piece of hand dyed fabric. It is not the right colours but I think I can make this work. For the big, REAL piece I will dye a piece specifically. Also, it will be rectangular like the original photo.
|My creative clutter. Cannot be sentimental about pretty pieces of fabric. I found a part I thought could work even though the original is different. I can make a piece more like the original later.|
|The story so far! This has a pretty wide border on it but it will be pruned down to 12" x 12" eventually|
I will post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com. I have had a busy time lately so have not been posting too much. I follow everyone though . Great work going on.
