Can you see the difference between picture 1 and 2?
Yes there are a few more fabrics, they are the mop-up cloths - 4 of them using up the rest of the dye as I hate throwing it down the sink. There are also a few kitchen papers with remnants of dye on them. I really didn't use very much silk dye for all these pieces.
The two purple, blue and red ones are the colours I love but I have quite a bit of green and yellow silk dye from a previous project so I am trying to use it up. They will be good contrasting pieces for what I intend doing with them.
Above you can see my small ATCs, you can just see on the top one what I used as the base - my train tickets from my York trip on Monday.
Last night I was playing around with them, adding a few pen marks. As I played with them I discovered that the dominant brown sections could be placed next to one another. By playing around with the placing this is what I got. I love the look.
Below are the two postcard sized pieces I created at the same time as the small ATCs. I'm not sure that I like them as much, they need a bit more working into.
Yesterday I went to get my pots remember last week's post this is how they turned out. Aren't they sweet?
I lashed out and got some new shoes. Sorry L I just had to put the pink laces in and looking closely at this photo I realise that they have already been christened. I wore my old fleece and an apron while doing my dying this morning honest!
My hands also suffered from the dying as I forgot to put on a pair of disposable gloves - typical!
