makiage


I’ve been wanting to add video to the blog for a while now. Here is my first attempt. This is merely a slideshow -just practicing to see how it all works. I actually have some video footage shot that I haven’t gotten around to editing yet. Should be interesting……

As for the makiage….this is a panel I drew out and stitched last night. The stitching is simple- especially white on black. It’s always good to use a high contrast thread that won’t dye or discharge (the better to see when you are pulling out the threads). This was done on black County Classic cotton from Joanns. I’m thinking what I want to do with it now. Definitely a wall piece. Perhaps backed and quilted to add some texture to the background…..if I do a binding around the edge I think I would like to see some shibori discharged binding…..

    The work is beautiful, but personally, I’d rather be able to study and enjoy still photos. All those powerpoint special effects, zooming in and out, actually made me a little dizzy.

    (To each his own, I suppose.)
