Aspects of the Glen - Vine

I like using different approaches in my work, a bit like a painter. This close-up abstraction is of a vine in the Glen at night, contrasted against a distant tree trunk, a cluster of falling leaves and spots of light shining through the background The use of bleach for discharging the colours of the black fabric gives such a rich, unique look. 

Materials: Batik, cottons, lace, tulle, organza, bleach 

Techniques: Discharging with bleach, Machine appliqué, heat cutting, free motion stitching, thread embellishment
