Blue Triangles emerging
I had so much fun playing with the green and gold creations that I just had to try it out in a different colour scheme. This time I used some hand dyed blue fabric and cut it into triangles and fused it to a piece of royal purple felt. I then layered it with bits of metallic glitter, some pieces of colourful metallic icicles (Christmas decorating stock), fuzzy yarns and bits of Angelina. The top layer is aqua organza and then it is free-motion stitched in purple thread and in a blue variegated thread around the triangles and in between them in garnet stitch. I burned a bit of the organza away to allow a few peek-a-boo holes in which I could insert some amethyst seed beads but I didn't distort the fibres as much as I did in the first example.
You will also see a couple of greeting cards that I made using pieces of this fabrication -- unfortunately, the colour is not very true (the cardstock is pure white but it looks pink on my monitor . . .)
