Thursday night was WI craft club and we had a go at Bargello and here's my little effort. I'm at a loss as to what I finish it as so if you have a suggestion I'd be glad to hear it.
After I'd done the painting, folding and twisting to spread the colour mine looked really awful, very muddy and uninspiring but and I was very tempted to go and run it under the tap and start again. I didn't in the end and by the time I'd set it the colour it improved vastly (in case you don't know anything about silk painting the colours change when you set it and all you need is a iron)
Yesterday was Guild day and we did a workshop for a felted silk scarf, you start off by doing the felting in whatever way works for you (I wet felted) then you do the painting after.
There are 4 of these patches, 2 on each end and with out trying I got them fairly level!
I'm still not totally in love with my creation but it is growing on me, all it needs now is the have the edges neatened up which Mum will do for me because although I have a new found freindship with my machine I'm not confident enough to tack working on silk.
