Fibre-in-Form workshop--Textured Surfaces

I am taking part in the online course with Fibre-in-Form from those 2 amazing Textile artists Lynda Monk and Carol McFee.
The title is Textured Surfaces and that's just what it is all about.
I have only included 4 samples here because it is hard to get a decent picture of white on white samples.
But in saying that the first one has a bit of colour mainly because I used a bit of fabric that I had rusted and also a piece of natural coloured Mulberry Bark.
The fabrics are glued onto Calico and some Texture Paste has been stenciled onto it as well.




The second one has a calico base with scrim glued on and then some textured wallpaper and a texture paste stencil also.


Next is a box canvas with a texture paste stencil again.


Lastly is another stencil with texture paste on artists canvas that I purchased in an A4 book size.


I did use other fabrics ie cotton twill and cotton duck and pelmet vilene but like I said it was hard to get a good picture of them.
Next week we add colour so then you will get a better picture.

Lovely set of samples here, Doreen, I especially like the second one down, the textured WP goes really well with the little squares. Looks like a very interesting course.

These look great. Where do you buy pelmet vilene? I went to lincraft and asked for it and they looked at me like I was crazy and said they didnt know what I was talking about

This looks like it will be a great course, love the textures. I too tried to buy pelmet Vylene, and ended up with something quite strong but I'm not sure if it is the real thing...Sue
