Walnut Shore revisited

The fourth of my Walnut Shore pieces.

No pebbles on this one!
Just more open space...

...and birds. There are always birds.

Walnut Shore continued

This is the third in the Walnut Shore series.

I was going to slice this into two pieces but decided to stay with the whole piece.
I hope it captures the wide open space of the beach.

Not forgetting some pebbles of course!

Walnut Shore

Deborah O'Hare

I first showed the beginning of these small pieces in October 2012! Oh dear :(

I did get around to complete one piece in 2012 and now nearly two years later I have got around to finishing the rest.

Deborah O'Hare

I have named them Walnut Shore and this is number 2.

There are others, and they have been completed :)

October Journal Quilt

Deborah O'Hare

This whole process is definitely helping me to think more about when and where to place my stitching.

Deborah O'Hare

I am not saying that I am getting it right, but I am thinking about it more, not just ploughing into it and then wishing I had given it more thought.

Deborah O'Hare

I do like the painterly quality that I get from using the Gelli Plate to create the backgrounds.
Not so sure about the feel of the fabric. I could have added textile medium and I did try at the beginning of this process, but stopped because it added another step to something that is after all just experimentation and because it made the paint a bit too loose.

Deborah O'Hare

That is why I am enjoying doing these pieces because I am learning as I go.
All caught up now! Only two more to go.

August Journal Quilt


Deborah O'Hare

I am catching up slowly with these. This one is my offering for August.

Deborah O'Hare

So far I am quite taken with these subdued greys and browns.
The previous one can be seen here.

Deborah O'Hare

I am also happier when I stick to liner marks.

Deborah O'Hare

I am also trying to repeat some of the printed marks so that there is some sort of cohesive quality to these little pieces. The large circle was previously seen here, here and here.
Stay tuned for September's offering.
