The next textilechallenge is "doors and windows" and I was thinking of using Gaudi architecture as my source. I had thought of using tyvek to create the texture but when I saw the Friendly Plastic I just new this was what I would use.
The colours and textures are lovely. I am working through a booklet I bought many years ago and forogt all about written by Liz Welch on how to use friendly plastic. I am having fun just playing to see what it can do for me. I just used the comb on the heated plastic to create the above effect.
You may just be able to see the Celtic stamp I used on this piece. I worked it too much, it folded over on itself and the black plastic from the back was showing through and so I just rubbed some Treasure Gold on the black bits.
I am really looking for a more "open" piece and tried stretching it a little. Once again I over worked it and just put Treasure Gold on it. You live and learn!
I used a wooden stamp on this piece. I think it has worked much better - but it may be that I am becoming a little more familiar with it.
I also couldn't resist getting some Paverpol, a textile hardener, to make dolls. The hardener is weather resistant and so I thought I would make a couple of dolls to sit outside the log cabin studio. Now all I need is some time!
