Colour of My Dreams
My technique involves layering fabric, yarn, thread, and paper onto a wool background. This may then be painted, printed and embellished with a needle felting machine and free machine stitching. I build up layers of colour and texture by twisting, slashing and fraying the fabric. The fabric is then cut up, collaged together and burned with a heat gun to expose the layers underneath. It is finished off by hand stitching with threads that vary in thickness creating more texture.
