New project- It's getting colourful!

An update on how the new project is coming along- it's getting colourful!

From this first experiment...

To this! 

I'm using scraps of Liberty fabrics, embroidered tray cloths and oddments of lace, machine stitched together. I've over-dyed some of the pieces using Permaset eco friendly screen printing inks in Rose and Glow Yellow, which I love!


I've also made some printing stamps using odd blocks of wood and fun foam and I'm starting to experiment with over printing the stitched pieces using the Permaset inks.


Some of the printed pieces



I'll keep you updated as I continue with these experiments- I'm hoping that I can develop these ideas into a summery jewellery collection. Watch this space!
