Studio journal 5

We had to choose a dingbat and enlarge it using this image we had to use repetition, overlapping

I coloured the shape and changed the size, the others are Positive/negative images and overlapping, the image reminds me of an Egyptian design or a ginko baloba leaf.

The next stage was to chose a design and enlarge it so that parts of it could be reused, fragmentation,I enjoyed this process and next time would pick a more complicated design.I used a stamp image but as it is in quarters not enough difference in the various parts, the stamp is shown down to the left

In 20 cm squares I drew sections of my enlarged stamp,to see if they could be used for further designs.This is a resolved piece using the dingbat stamp and hand quilted

First thanks for blog comment. Hope to finish the sculpture pieces later this week IF I can find the fabric.
You have produced such a lot of work. It is amazing to see just how many designs can be created from just one original.

What a beautiful resolved piece, Pippa, and the process was brilliant to read through, thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks for sharing your studio journal stuff, I have not been able to get my head around a few things and this has clarified it for me, I will be back looking.

I hadn't seen your dingbat designs. This is wonderful adn the piece you have done even more so. I haven't even tried dingbats yet and didn't feel all that keen but you are inspiring me to spend some time - thankyou. (I love purple too!)
