Rocks, Building Stones and Boards IV
Taking a break to do a few other things and letting me eyes rest from the project at hand always seem to let me resume with enthusiasm.
I thought the large pieces of fabric were too plain although I used prints. I wanted more definition of the rocks and so I began adding some bits of color to each stone.
If you look closely you can see the button head pins I used to place some of these pieces. By this time, all those rocks are sewn onto the underlying base fabric. I use a fairly sturdy material such as a duck. I am not particularly concerned with fiber content although I usually use a cotton or cotton blend.
In the upper left corner, I began to add some dyed cheesecloth and tulle to further enhance the idea of rocky surfaces.
