Lynn - Leafy Layers
Coming from a mining background, I first thought of geological layers.Eventually, I decided to do fabric layers with a technique I have recently learned.
This began with 2 fabrics, the same size, with the design drawn on the top layer. As the design was cut away, needle-turned and hand appliqued, the bottom layer was exposed. Further layers were added on top of the leaves, so with wadding and backing, there are 5 layers!
I enjoyed the process so much that I made 3 more versions to take to Japanese friends on my recent trip to Japan.
