Layers of Texture

Saturday saw me teaching a one day 'taster' workshop for ATASDA NSW entitled "Layers of Texture".
15 ladies came along to the Epping Creative Centre and enjoyed (hopefully) a day creating texture through mixed media and stitch in layers of sheers and scrims.

3 scrim layers on mixed media background

common shapes, different textures in layers
Textured backgrounds were laid down using fabrics with gel mediums and texture gels ready for stitch embellishment.
Then as lace is a particular love of mine the girls spent some time to practise free machining on loosely woven scrims creating lacy features for layering up.

Many thanks girls for your enthusiasm and patience.  Had a ball!
Hope I get to see some of those creations completed at the next meeting.
