Heat Distressing Textiles...
After spending an entire day Friday (from about 7 am ntil a wee bit after midnight) - cleaning the studio ,closets, drawers, cabinets, scrubbing work surfaces and floor, I decided to kick back today.
This is just one of several pieces I made today. I also experimented by making a sepia and vintage color surface and a jewel toned distressed textile.
On this particular piece (all three pictures are of the same piece,) I
used two colors of thread - a deep plum on one side and a variegated blue on the other. I definitely like the plum thread more. The lighter thread calls too much attention to the stitching, take a backseat. I may have to do something about that - maybe lay some color overtop of the thread.
It was a nice day with much success. I always enjoy doing these types of projects.
It really cleans up so nice.
I think it's the light colors.
A place for EVERYTHING.....
And EVERYTHING in it's Place!
