Dyeing to Design Class...

I saved some of the black gradations I dyed last week for the class.

I decided to try something abstract this time:

It was therapy sewing just to cut the fabric into strips and

piece it back together again...

I cut the strip set into skinny strips...

I pulled out a design board:

I used the two darkest gradations for the background...

I see trees...

I like the way it looks at an angle.

 Here are the 2 studies I did with the black gradations:

I tend to work with vibrant colors in most of my textiles.

I learned a lot from removing colors from the equation and 

working with only shades of black.

Next is Lesson 2.....Dyeing the Color Wheel

The hum of the sewing machine puts Gunnr to sleep.

I love both of these! The abstract "trees" are awesome! Good work on the gradients!!!

They both look great. I can certainly see 'trees'and they look great. Swaying in the wind like our real ones are doing today!
