Dallas Miniature Textiles Exhibit


I am participating in the International Miniature Textiles Invitational-Dallas. I decided to try the iridescent fabric on darks for that piece, and here's what I submitted: Night Garden.

While I worked on this little piece (11 x 14) I struggled with being so rigid. I need to think less about fabric and more about value. Maybe I should re-organize my fabric, but OH! what a chore that would be. Maybe a big sign over my work space would do: THINK VALUE

Hi Martha,
I love "Night Garden," it positively glows. Are the iridescent pieces three-dimensional? It appears so in the picture. I'd be interested to know how you achieved that. Can't wait to see more! Aloha!
