Time to begin catching up with the creativeness of our GeeTAG group.
I have a few photos of a recent meeting of the group where Shirley demonstrated how she made her lovely painted, stitched and textured pieces with Angie Hughes at last year’s Geelong textiles forum. Shirley brought along her wonderful pressurised spray bottles and we all had great fun spray painting our pieces of white cotton velvet. Then we removed some paint, then we stamped some more paint and added foil. Then we covered in sheer, stitched and distressed/cut away. All of this took two sessions over two months. Below are some progress shots:
These are both Pauline’s’s I believe. I have taken photos of my two but haven’t worked out how to get the photos off my new Nikon SLR and into the computer!!! I’m sure there should be a lead somewhere but will have to wait for 16 year old son to come home and show me!!!
Our next get together will be the Geelong Branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild exhibition next weekend where I should be able to take lots of photos of the groups work, nothing like a deadline to get you motivated!
Another post is following shortly showing the fun some of our members had at the recent TAFTA Geelong Forum and also a great workshop with Alice Clague on Tyvek.
