|Sounds of Silence|
September 2013 Challenge – “Sounds of Silence”
Title: “Sounds of Silence”
There is nothing better than a drive in the country on a summer’s day, and this inspired my “Sounds of Silence” piece. Even with the radio blasting my favourite tune, birds singing in the background, and the wind whistling with the window down, I find my mind can just peacefully absorb the surroundings in silence.
This piece is done with confetti size pieces of fabric from my stash bag. I’ve fused them down and machine stitch down with tulle. This was a very much improvised exercise with only a photograph to work from. I didn’t test the techniques, rather, I just sat down and started cutting small pieces of fabric and “painted” as I went. The one thing I didn’t do was step back a few times, so afterwards, I needed to readjust the perspective a bit.
