I have worked on samples using techniques that I have never tried before - smoking and furrowing. I preferred doing the smoking on the check fabric so that I didn't have to mark the grid on the reverse of the fabric.
I have decided that I am not a very neat person, but am definitely a colour and texture person. I love creating texture and colour - with layers of sheer fabric and with lots of stitching. I think the running stitch background on both of the final sample pieces has worked really well. This is something I will be using again.
I have found drawing in a sketchbook very difficult this time and I am really going to have to concentrate on doing more drawing for the next assignment.
I am really looking forward to starting Project 7. It has been difficult to settle on a final topic, but I think now that I have decided to use my garden as inspiration.
