Blue dream – Rêve bleu

I finished my ‘Blue Dream”

I spent a lot of time in cutting the threads between some of the letters.
This improvised piece measures +/- 21 x 33 inch.
I combined several techniques:
The improvised collage of ripped fabric,
To keep it all in place, I sewn it all together,
I stamped some forms with textile paint,
I embroidered some poems
And to finish I quilted this work.

J’ai terminé mon “Rêve Bleu”

J’ai passé énormément de temps à couper les fils entre certaines lettres.
Mais, personnellement, je suis heureuse du résultat.
Cette œuvre improvisé mesure 55 x 85 cm.
J’ai combiné de nombreuses techniques différentes :
Le ‘collage improvisé’ de bouts de tissus déchirés,
Pour les maintenir en place, je les ai cousus,
Le tamponnage (j’ai utilisé de la peinture textile),
La broderie : les poèmes,
Et le matelassage pour finir.

Write you soon
À très bientôt,

I absolutely LOVE this, the richness and tones of the blue just jump out at you. What a cool idea to embroider poems on the piece. You must be very patient and have steady hands to cut all those threads that connected the letters :)
