Fibre-in Form Samples

In this part of the Fibre-in-Form Textured Surfaces workshop we are couching fibres etc onto fabric to make a textured background ready to paint.
The first one is different fibres couched down close together to create texture-----



This one is fibres and scrim---------


Here I have rows of cotton fabric stitched onto calico with fibre attached at the same time-----



This is a very wide ric-rac braid and knotted fabric-----------



Lastly this is a piece of cotton fabric that I had which has a fantastic pattern on it which in turn gives a great textural background.





We have to add paint to these.

I'm still having trouble getting my head around the fact that you're going to paint these!! Seems all wrong somehow. However, I'm willing to wait and see!!

I really like that first one. Couching is such fun and always adds great textures.
