|Appliqué - created with dyed, painted and screen printed fabrics|
Lately I've been spending a lot of time in the print room dyeing things, screen printing, playing around with puff binder and using bondaweb to collage these fabrics- very fun but also tiring! I'm happy with the sampling I've created from it and can't wait to mount everything onto boards to show off the bright colours and textural aspects. I feel like these colours are a lot more vibrant than what I originally had with my paper collages but I don't think that's a bad thing, I actually think they illustrate my concept a lot more easily.

Innovation is about introducing new ideas and being creative in thinking. I think I am reaching that point- it may only be mild but maybe sometimes it's the little things which make something new and exciting. A certain brush stroke; a burst of colour; a small fraction of texture. I'm trying not to overthink things too much. ♦
