2020 Weekly Leaf, week 23, Burr Oak Leaf Series
Eco/botanical print on vintage silk
Daily Collage days 25-29
I've switched it up and am using 5 inch square pieces of recycled cardboard for the base and gel medium to apply papers.
I've gone 21 days without doing a daily stitching project and I missed having it to start my studio time. The daily collages are enjoyable but I missed the stitching. Doing the collages has made me very aware of how much stuff I have tucked away to use someday, so much that it gets overwhelming. While putting away the fabrics I'd been using for the collages I came across a pile of silk noil scraps that I've had for a very long time. They were very odd shaped but out of six of these scraps I was able to get 30 squares in three different sized, 6", 4" and 2". Another box had scraps of pole wrapped shibori fabric with fusible web on the back, in odd shapes and sizes. The six and four inch squares each got a scrap fused to them and they will get added stitching, the 2 inch ones will just get stitching. Here is the basket ready to go.
Here are the first four days of the month.
At the end of the month all thirty pieces will be stitched together.
I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"
