A Bit of the Harvest

Here is a bit of the fruits of yesterday's labors...but just one small bit. I hope I'll have time to share more tomorrow.

This is the piece of silk roving that I dyed and added in inclusions to yesterday. Funny thing is, I had so wanted to add gold leaf, and then I forgot! There are a few dried flowers, LOTS of bits of sulky sliver, a good bit of glitter, and some loose yarns. They don't show up too well here, but you can view closeups on my Flickr account at right.

OK, now here's where you come in! I'm toying with the idea of mounting this piece on another piece of hand dyed silk. What do you think of this idea and what do you think of the combo below?

Don't be shoulders are broad and I really do want your feed back! Any suggestions on how to make it better? More purple perhaps???

Below is the same silk fusion on the same silk, but just moved around a bit. Good idea or not? Speak up, for heaven's sake!!!

And I'll leave you with an up close and personal view of my new shoes. I'm disappointed to see that I've already really scuffed up the toes. :-( Bummer!!! Oh, but they are so comfy...and I can't wait to get my new hand knit socks on with them....remind me to show you my socks!! woohoo!!!!

I dunno, Judy. To me, those two brights are fighting with each other: I don't know where to look first. There - you've got one opinion!

It's a beautiful piece of fusion Judy! Why not just mount it without a background fabric? Or maybe try a black or neutral one?

I would add a sleeve, and hang it as it. But, what do I know??

What about a dark blue like the darkest bit on the fabric? BTW love the shoes. To me comfort is all but you have combined that with great looks.

I agree with Rayna (and before I saw her comment!). I would try a green for the background, if you want to try something else.

Nice shoes! Just what I ought to wear on my feet. Love them!

About the silk. Well, I don't know anything about these things, so I keep my mouth shut =)
Nice colors though ;-)

The fusion piece is great. I think I would try a darker background. Whether it's green, blue, purple, black....I'd have to audition!
