cloth sketch book
I've been into my studio almost every day this past week. I'm attempting to translate my ball point pen sketches into something more tangible. I'm using silk, poly sheer and indigo dyed fabrics that I have on hand. All 13 inches square, a few of them are touched with acrylic paint. Stitching is minimal right now. Only invisible thread attaches layers together, small bits of embroidery once in a while. I'm thinking about them as if they are a book. A sketch book. They are really helping me to find my palette, calm my imagery.
