Task #1 Colour and how to use it
Kathy gave us a mini course on colour. Very very interesting. Here is what I showed the class after reading the material she provided.
Photo 1: Using A Focal/Focus Fabric
I often use this method when choosing fabrics in my doll making. The selection below is for a doll I'm making at the moment. The focus fabric in the middle is her body and I've gathered fabrics and trims to compliment that fabric. I won't use all of them of course:)
Photo 2: Using Colour Schemes
I chose the Monochromatic Scheme. The colour and texture of the fabrics appealed to me.
Photo 3: My Personal Choice
I love autumn colours...shades of the forest:) I tend to use lots of rusts, greens, browns and such in my creations.
Here are my three blocks that I'll be working on.
The first one is just random pieces of fabric......
|I'm not in love with this block. It verges on ugly but I will stick with it:)|
The second has a "silkie" in the middle. I really had some trouble getting the picture that we were given to print dark enough. I have a new cartridge so that wasn't the problem. Not to worry. This is really only a practice block to learn new skills.
Task #3 Trees:
So next I have to do two types of trees. A twisted tree that I have decided to put up the side of block one. I'm going to use rusty brown chenille for the tree trunk.
|What an artiste...hee hee...you get the idea I hope:)|
I also have some silk leaves to use on my tree...
Kathy suggested that I do my tree in the upper right hand corner in whites, pinks and silver. As soon as I finish both of them I'll post pictures so you can see how I did.
Did I say I was behind in this class?......eeeek.......LOL
