After much deliberation I have chosen the photo as the background for the seagull.
I have printed onto fabric, added strips of sheers and stitched on French knots for texture. Along the bottom I glued on sand. The seagull has given it his approval.
Oh and I have fixed his eyes.
This is the last of the seagull saga. I am pleased, the seagull is pleased and I am sure everyone out there will be pleased to see the last of him.
Have drawn seaweed to go inside the small books space.
Once photo background is backed and fixed in place the " Coastline Cabinet " will be finished.
This is almost it at long last.
Back to the workbook.
Looking at starting a new piece based on 9 patches.
Using the sand ripples and the lines from coastal maps. No idea where this is going or what the end result will be.
Thinking about it being a whole 9 patch piece but each piece will work in its own right. I have seen various work in exhibitions using the 9 patch idea so the idea is not mine. I hope I can make my piece my own, using my style.
Plan for next week.
1 Finally finish Cabinet
2 Work through ideas for next piece
3 Get work packed for 10th Dec.
Look in next week to give a last wave to Seagull.
