Starting from scratch.

Exploring mark making, finding ideas for a return to embroidery. 

I started by drawing marks left by cleared ivy, then used IColorama to expand the original mark, which is in the centre.

Another sample

Another experiment with tucks, using felting (wool) and non-felting (cotton) fibres. The cotton is very vintage – the ball bands are marked in ounces,  which suggests it’s at least 40 years old. It may also have shrunk slightly, but the colour didn’t run, which I was more worried about. 

Lots of possibilities, I think.
