Dear Diary 2014, Week 29

14th July to 20th July 2014

Week 29's V&A image is a Design by James Leman {1688-1745}, Spitalfield. It is a bright colourful floral image. My interpretation has been to use produce something that is colourful but light and simple. I have tie dyed a piece of fabric in similar colours and outlined a few areas in running stitch. It is a fun, happy, spring piece that reminds me of the Paddle Pop Rainbow ice cream.

  1. a rainbow ice cream? This is definitely too pretty to eat....

  2. I love the saturated colours - and the running stitches seem evocative of the veins in the leaves. Like this one!
