Hi Trace Willans here from the Great Southern Region of Western Australia.
This is my first time alphabetising here with ALAW.
So I am hoping that I will get away with the rules I will break.
I work a lot with multiple processes and as I work only with natural materials and make all my own paints etc, it makes sense to me to work in multiples.
So what I thought I would do is each month show the letters after having done the next process.
I hope that makes sense.
Above are my first 4 letters hand stitched in cretan stitich onto cotton fabric.
Next month I will show what has happened to the next 4 letters.
This not my dotty alphabet!!!!
Hi Trace. I'm new here too. Just signed up this passed weekend. I have not yet posted my alphabet but when I saw your I had to respond with, "comrade." I should be posting my letters a-d by the week's end and you see why I say that. I too work in natural fibers and hand-dyed fabric. Mine are done mostly with metals and plants. I then stitch onto the fabrics. I was planning on building an accordion book with these first blocks - for alphabet #1. So, in a round about why you can see why I was so happy to "meet" you. Take care for now - lovely colouring with stitch and cloth. Thank you for sharing -ReplyDelete
I too am new to ALAW and am really enjoying seeing the different ways people work.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you use very interesting processes, Trace. Look forward to seeing more.
Hi Tracey, I too work with natural stuff/dyes/fabric/etc but have been doing this from the beginning. I am glad there are more like minded people out there. I am not a calligraphist so it is challenging for me. Christine....ReplyDelete
I'm a new one here too and very happy to see how different all of us are in the materials we use and the way we work ! I'm waiting for your next four !ReplyDelete
I love these Trace - the stitching is quirky but warm. Looking good!ReplyDelete
Trace... so glad you are in the loop this year. I look forward to more great letters. The papers and bits you posted me are already appearing in collages.ReplyDelete
THanks for all your nice words. I am so glad there are a few a bit like me in the group.Quirky I can do calligraphic I most definitely am not!!!! x teReplyDelete
