Using the same print as before – chalk and charcoal filter – I ironed it onto calico.
Charcoal Xpandaprint was added to highlight some areas.
Free machined using a wide zig zag and rayon thread with a loose tension into the Xpandaprint and other areas. Used the Embellisher to catch down snippets of black organza which were then machined into.
Whole piece coated with watered down gesso.
Then of course, I couldn’t resist it – I added bleach!
For some reason the colour sometimes alters when I take photos at very close range, but occasionally they still look good.
