Something Different

Something I was working on over the weekend.
A background of calico with scrim over the top was couched with different weight yarns using a zig zag machine stitch.
Xpandaprint was dabbed on in places, heated to expand then FME was worked randomly on top.
The whole piece was then covered in a coat of white emulsion and when dry black fountain pen ink was painted on top.
Treasure Pewter was then rubbed over the raised areas.

Close up


Something different?
1 I did not use bleach over the ink
2 I used Treasure Pewter instead of Treasure Gold
3 I actually like the piece so far

Yes, definitely something different.
