Last week I asked what we might do with a collection of coral and shells. There were a few very interesting answers. Today I will pick one of the items and take it a stage further.
Drawing and colour study
A section taken from the drawing and the lines enlarged. I then placed it in an oval shape.
The shape quilted onto silk with a layer of wadding backed with muslin. The stitch used was a simple chain stitch in a decorative thread.
What did I do with it? Please be patient with me as I am still tired but will finish the project next week and take the drawing on a stage further:
Using the curved lines and changing the oval to an egg shape, I removed some lines and added others.
I hope I have aroused your curosity to come back next week to see the fruits of my labour.
