My BrownSageBlue piece is another in what is turning out to be a series of line studies. I started with the brown silk background which cooperatively turned into blue with a little discharge paste. That set me on a path of continuing with circles. The circles on the right side are made using a paper lamination technique. I scrubbed it rather vigorously, which accounts for the lines you see between the circles.
That done, I added the circle on the left and started in with the handstitching. Originally, I had fallen in love with a piece of chartreuse looking fabric I had and rationalized that it was almost sage, especially after Terry's blog about the different colors of sage.
I couldn't let it go though, and ended up covering it over with a more traditional sage looking fabric.
Where do you find the time?
