The Artists Muse Chapter 6

The Challenge for September was a black and white theme.
I chose to do the fabric challenge this time and selected level 2 which was to create a piece of work to represent one of the following words---fluid--mysterious--elegant or sharp.
I used the weaving technique that Emmy had on her blog way back in January whereby I had to cut the fabric in wavy strips and then weave them together like the photo shows.
I was allowed to add red stitching in this as well.
I started out with the intention of just stitching the sections done in red but before I knew it I had done the black and also the white-then I added the black and red around the border.
I'm not sure which of the words describes this piece but I don't think it is "elegant "

Oh yes! I like this. Very fluid I reckon (you could say even wobbly!)
I love the red around three of the 'squares' - makes them glow! Val

I like this too, it's very contemporary and bold. I like it a lot!

Micki said...

I agree with Sue, it has a contemporary look to it. Nice!
