TIF Jan08 - Colour scheme in the style of:

Having mentioned the work of Winsome Douglass, I thought I should make at least a token attempt at interpreting her style. I matched the colour scheme as close as I could with what I had to hand.

I space dyed a piece of calico (muslin) with green and purple dyes to get a range of different hues, selected a range of stranded embroidery threads and used some of the decorative stitches that feature often in Winsome Douglass's work. It looks a bit 'flowery', but I think that is down to the way I've used the colours.

I love watching the exploration that you are doing with your theme!

Doesn't look flowery to me but like an exotic creature from outer space. As Vicki said, I am loving watching your progress with the inital design concept to execution. Looks like you have endless ideas to work with.

This is lovely, and ditto to the comments above, it is fascinating to watch you develop this concept!
