A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

An Archi-textural Urn
After one heck of a lot of deliberation and changes of mind I finally found the perfect design for me to produce something quick and effective for my Challenge piece.
I printed this section of the design onto Lutradur, placed fabric behind it which is from the Stonehenge Collection by Northcott, outlined the shapes with rayon thread then painted a light layer of puff paint on the raised sections before zapping with the heat gun. And here's the result...
I couldn't capture the exact colours but they are more of a pale aqua, pale pink and grey. I think it does look better in the flesh though!
