In this Chapter inspiration is taken from water or sky collaged designs from Chapter TWO and translated into fabric samples using a cutwork technique. Each cutwork sample is followed by a detailed view of an area.
Background is dyed lining fabric with three layers of fabric. The dark “rocks” are reinforced with blocks of dense stitching.
Ripples in the silk background are made through stitching, two other layers are applied, the dark one is cut, the frothy light blue chiffon is frayed.
The background is light felt, three other layers on top, the last one is an old thick sweater brushed with acrylic.
For this last sample I chose another water collage and on its light felt background three other layers of very thin fabrics are stitched
