However I have made a start on a new piece - and got a working title for it - currently "Beyond the Stars"
It is based on a section of Sacred Mysteries - the sailing boat section.
The background is a rough sunset/water painted onto vylene - I always rough out the background colours - even though they wont show in the finished piece as it gives me a starting point for the fabric, papers and stitching - and it is far easier to make a first stitch into colour than untouched white - rather like its hard (sometimes) to draw on the first page of a new sketchbook - I always start a couple of pages into the book.
Starting the layers
For the sea I wanted words in the background. I have transferred a letter onto tissue paper which I have ripped up and placed on the background.
Building up the fabric layers
I am now starting to build up the fabric layers of the sea - that's all I had time for today - but when I next get time in the studio - hopefully tomorrow - I will continue to build up the fabric layers in the sky. At this point they are only pinned down - Giving scope for tweaking when all the fabrics are in place, prior to stitching
