With the deadline in 4 days to get this off to New York, I’m as usual, going to be working right up to the line. I must have a thing for dangerous edges. No wonder I fall off cliffs. Here’s a couple of pages that I put together just for the purpose of printing off and cutting up for inclusion into my little mystery. They aren’t meant to be interesting in themselves, but well …
What I did was photocopy a sheet of sheer organza dyed with rust onto which I placed the various textures, all of which have meaning beyond their patterns. The rust-dyed organza acted as a coloured filter. I then scanned the photocopies and adjusted them to my taste in Photoshop. The glaring blue checkered square was a later addition, so didn’t go under the filter.
Next step is to print them onto TAP (Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist’s Paper) which I’ve been experimenting with. It’s fascinating. You print onto the sheet, then hot iron them onto your paper or fabric.
I didn’t mean to, but discovered a technique I’m going to be using again.
Anybody using TAP?
