Nevertheless... it has a very pretty flower & I particularly like it in bud form. Therefore, to compensate for the fact that I have severely reduced it's life expectancy in my garden, I chose to focus on it for this week's art project!
As you may have noticed, there is a LOT of fabric wastage in this technique! Consequently, I have overflowing scrap bins in different colours. These are helpful when making cards, doing fabric collage or even trying to rustle up an approximate colour plan for my larger pieces. When I can reuse a discarded piece of fabric, I do. Using it within the same art piece, as I have here, is a bonus!
Adding stitch to the very edge sections of this design, reinforced the 'frame' effect & helped to focus the viewer's eye on the flower bud. A very pleasing end result achieved in a relatively short space of time.
The weather has finally turned a little more autumnal (mid 20's celsius), which means I will be spending more time trying to tame the garden before winter comes. Whilst I'm cutting back & digging up, who knows what plant will grab my attention & beg to be my muse next week!
Until then...happy cutting!
