Playing with indigo pieces

This past week I was drawn to play with some of my indigo pieces. I wasn’t sure where they were going, but I thought I’d follow the muse. And since my word for this year is completion, I was excited to go for the ride.

I started by cutting up some pieces for a wall hanging. The white pieces are also indigo dyed pieces that just didn’t get much dye. They worked perfect for what I was planning for this project.

Then I was off to find a quote I wanted to stencil on this wall hanging, and then cut the stencil. But while I’m waiting for that idea to gel, I started cutting small and came up with these two collages.

As I’m progressing on the wallhanging, I continued on my ideas for the small collages. I grabbed a canvas, painted it with Lumiere Indigo and printed out some words.

And the wall hanging. After taking the picture this morning I think it needs another bird or two and I will be stitching around the border. But it’s almost done.

I absolutely love this quote. Here is a closeup.

So that’s what I’ve been up to. What about you? As always thanks for dropping by.
