Teach yourself a new skill – the next steps

I’m currently working on photographs for a new book for Juliet Robertson @Creativestar (Juliet’s blog is here.)

She introduced me to the idea of Hapa Zome and I have  written about  this in an earlier blog post here. However, having spent weeks working on different materials, different plants and leaves – even different hammers! I found myself with a pile of dyed fabric and not a lot of idea what to do with it! So I decided to teach myself free hand machine embroidery. Several hours on Pinterest, loads of you tube videos, numerous mistakes and I have finally managed to create a series of (very) abstract cards. I’m very much still learning but am loving experimenting!

Hapa Zome Craft Cards

If you look at the header you can see that I have used Photoshop to turn some of my images into templates and am working on these at the minute x
