I am forever practicing new techniques to create different effects. This one is called a mosaic method I will be teaching in an upcoming workshop.
In this next photo, I have shown the effect of steamed surface (on left) versus an unsteamed surface( on the right). Steaming provides a smooth even surface, while leaving it unsteamed provides a more textural uneven surface.
Interpretation of art is in the eye of the beholder. I had originally hooked these two on a narrow scrap of linen to be hot pads for my kitchen. But since I turned them on their side, my husband says that they look like butterfly wings and I said they look like a pair of eyes viewing a beautiful world. What do you see?
