Here is my November TIF piece. It is 4"x6" and is going to be used for a "green" postcard exchange in December as well. Two projects in one or how to save time during a busy holiday season. This month's challenge was to use typography as design. I had a hard time getting enthused about this one. This piece has several layers and I originally planned to use some amorphous "letters" that I had stitched into some green organza but I didn't like it. So I added a layer of very light green silk hankie which looks white in the photo. And then added a large letter with stitch on dissolving fabric. Did you figure out the letter?
How about now? I was going to try and do the full word Green with a kind of optical illusion emphasizing the negative space around the type but the idea just didn't pan out as I wanted it to. So I kind of just winged it as I needed to finish.
Here's a close up view. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving next week.
