This will be another Kate Davies's Paper Dolls
I'm using Fuzzy Wuzzy from my childhood.
Actually, there is another project. Naughty I know but there it is.
|Well, I may have intended the greens to become a bit obscure and 'hinted at', but it just looks too muddy. So, I'm taking almost all of the green out and redoing it in a stronger shade.|
|Then, who knows, maybe the tan will look wrong? I think I like the tan.|
|Definitely obscure, but there... my initials.|
|The Uzbekistan source has become quite obscured with my colour choices. I can see that the central leafy motif is well asymmetrical, but as the foliage continues all the way around, it should be ok. I have an avoidance issue with symmetry.|
|As the background goes in around the foliage, it blends into it and become more of a hue than a distinct leaf. Which is what I want.|
|I'm so in love with the blue of the blobs. Peas? Just scrumptious. Dyeing is fun!|
|Not sure if I'll leave the darker outside bit. We'll see. There are a few different shades for the outside. I don't want it to be static. Oh, and I didn't dye enough of anything.|
|I've since taken out the greens and am dyeing more (and more) fabric to try and find the right shade.|
|The floral motifs look like islands here, but are blending in as the background is filled in. I don't have enough of any one shade for the background... Note to self: Take notes! I think I've cracked it now...? Today's batch, that is. I had some gorgeous grass green tones, but have knocked them back a bit with the 'Quarry', which is the slate-ish colour all of the background colours have in varying degrees.|
|It's difficult to get the right shade in my photo's, but it's a warm, cheerful, greeny, bluey grey. Egg-shell-esque. I've started to blend the next background colour in, by working higgledy-piggledy rows of the first, and coming in with the second so as to avoid a stark break between (as I'd done elsewhere and had to pull it out). Der! I've left the green in so far, but it won't stay there. It's such a pretty shade, but had too little contrast to the slate.|
