Textile Art for hanging around (wall)

Again my love of the Flinders Ranges has been expressed in yet another wall quilt. Created with cotton fabric I rusted with things collected from the council cleanup (lots of fun looking), then more fabrics were stamped and painted with Jo Sonja acrylic paints (dilluted with textile medium) I am very happy with the outcome. You will see that monoprinting techniques were used to create textural images that reflect the essence of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.

Beads were also applied, along with hand stitch using some of my “precious” yarns bought on a whim.

Again I was interested to view the tonal qualities of these colours, by playing with Photoshop to create a black and white image.

I have been reflecting a lot on the degree of time I spend on the computer – something I find too frustrating for words, but relief is in sight – as plans are underway to make more time and space available for my textile art experiences. So, you can hope to see more of my work in the near future. I am looking forward to sharing with my wider community in this way, so please do drop me a comment every now and again, will you?

    hi Pamela, yes i’m here but the last few days the Big Puddle has been out of action so i’ve been a bit frustrated re the computer. Your previous one “nature’s forces” was very colourful and i’m sure you must have had fun doing it, but this one is more my “cup of tea” as it were. i like the subtler shades and the visual texture. Your style keeps changing. cheers, kaite

    Hi Kaite, Good to hear from you and see your lovely work on blog. I have been experimenting with the paints – so hence the bright one. Like you, I prefer to more subtle and softer piece. Hope your beautiful garden is not harmed too much with the “puddle”. Pamela
