This week I’ve been having fun with the first lesson of the free online course which Maggie Grey is running for anyone who has bought her book, Textile Translations: Mixed Media. We had to choose a motif and I had one of these made from a stamp of beach huts so decided to keep to my present theme of houses and make the book in the shape of a house rather than the sort of triangle shape she suggested. These are all going to be stitched together to form the cover but this is as far as I’ve got so far.
This one will be the back.
And this one will be the middle.
Here is the reverse of one of the cover pages.
I’ve got to stitch into them next so I hope the gesso and paint don’t break the needle!!! More anon…
