I had no idea when I started this fibre art stuff that it was going to be so contagious and ...well...take over my life. I think a health warning is called for, y'know? Like we have on everything else here in New Zealand. The need to save people from themselves. Where's the Victim Support people? Where's the mental health funding for addicts like me? I have spent most of the weekend doing this:
The first photos show some of the early process, where I started with one or 2 colours as the base and used leaves and paper cutouts as resists. Each piece of fabric has had about 4 layers of dye and resists. The red and grey leaf print piece I like too much to cut up - the others I have chopped into 6 inch squares. Click on the photos for a closer look. These will actually be made into something. IF I CAN STOP MONOPRINTING LONG ENOUGH.
I could do this stuff all day long....actually, I just have. Sigh. Today I really must do some other stuff as well.
