Poppy Landscape in Fabric
The wonderful textile artist Gilda Baron inspired me to create this piece
I worked much the same as Glenda although I havent the patience to do all the hand sewing so where she does French Knots and all sorts of fancy stitchwork,I opted out for beads instead....... mine is a much simpler version,What drew me to this was the idea of painting a landscape background first off onto fabric.
I started with a plain piece of white cotton material,then painted with fabric paints also used some Acrylic paint,and Fabric Markers.
Next came the machine sewing,I used my darning foot,actually done some free sewing lol WITH a sewing hoop !! needs a lot of practice........
I,m quite pleased with the outcome,not sure what it will be used for yet,maybe a book cover or a wall hanging.........The poppies are more red/ orange looking here on my desk !
I used Fabric paper for these.
