Henri Matisse is known for his vibrant colourful cut-out compositions, drawing or painting with scissors. I was captivated by this exhibition on holiday and have been fascinated ever since.
A friend has a leafy cut out picture full of rainbow colours similar to these.
For her birthday I hooked an experimental freestyle One Of A Kind cotton coaster, inspired by Matisse leaf patterns.
It really was like painting with cotton!
The idea appeared before the materials - I intended to use cotton from my stash, but out shopping happened upon two fabulous skeins in a charity shop.
The customary view from behind!
Working in the back of stitches gives a knobbly effect!
There's another exciting freeform project waiting in the wings....I'm enjoying taking and selecting photographs, and LoVeD the creating process!
Looking forward to sharing it soon!
