Work in Process


I've been working on this landscape lately,
made with tulle and sheer fabrics layered over each other
and fused with "Mistyfuse".
I found that you can tear netting/tulle on the bias to get some nice ragged edges,
and the layers of colors blend together like watercolors.
I used yarns to suggest hedges and even a bit of olive green lace 
at the bottom for a vine-y look.
A sheer fantasy landscape!
Next I'll go back in with some machine stitching and possibly mount it,
with ragged edges showing, on a linen-wrapped canvas.

love it. did you place the yarn under the fabric to get the vine-y effect?

Judy Hartman said...

Such lovely comments - thank you, friends.
Cyndee, the yarn is couched with thread and the upper strands are covered in places by tulle.

You really do have an eye for creating beautiful, realistic landscapes.
