Small tapestry weaving
Playing around with a very fine sett of 22 epi on this little tapestry. The warp is a button and carpet thread that is very strong. So far so good...no broken threads. These might be great for stitching accents due to the fine sett. Experimenting continues.
Neutral colors for tapestry weaving
Warm inviting neutrals. I can't seem to get enough of them lately. Greys, taupes, creams and bronzy tones are calling to me. Is Winter having an effect? Maybe? I can never seem to have enough of them stocking my yarn shelves or in my paint stash. Time to fire up the dyepots for more greys. I love dyeing yarn in the Winter months.
Well, it seems that when I made some changes to the site and did an upgrade and I lost my journal. Maybe that is a sign. A new fresh start for 2018. So pictured above are some new paintings that I'm working on. Painting on ceramic tiles and Aqua board. Some might become small tapestries as well. Still thinking about that.
Also back to my sewing machine for some stitching on these mixed media paintings. I'm keeping the palette fairly monochrome and I really like the feel so far.
