Tiles 4 ----- to the theme Light and Dark
I use up some motley yellow fabric that I had painted. I overpainted this with sun reactive paints and used a stencil as my main mask. I put my painted pieces in the greenhouse so the wind would not disturb my arrangement. I was amazed at how well they came out. By the time I came to print a length for the border the lovely sunny days had passed. After waiting and waiting I one day rather impatiently chose what I thought was a sunny spell but as soon as I was ready to take it out the sun practically disappeared.
I free machine quilted round the motifs. A rather mindless piece but I so much enjoyed doing it. I am looking forward to using this technique on other discarded fabrics and with different colours.
I felt it fitted the theme of dark and light both in execution and with the result.
