This week I wanted to continue with posting a few photos of delicious textures. The two photos below are both orders I placed on Etsy this week. I am beginning to get a vision in my mind of the butterflies I will be creating for The Butterfly Effect project and theoretically plan to include these purchases in the butterflies.
The first image is handspun recycled and uncarded sari silk yarn (fair trade) and the second one -again, sari silk ribbon skeins. Links to the Etsy shops I found these in are posted below each photo.
I know that Lorraine Stobie is also a texture and color junkie and lucky for me, she created a skinny page for me several months ago that combined both elements in a strikingly harmonious way. She created this skinny depicting a forest floor interspersed with flowers. Striking isn't it? Thanks again Lorraine. For more information on the techniques she used, you can visit her website here
Finally, just a sneak 'macro' preview of one of the butterflies that arrived this week - from another obviously talented and gifted textile and surface design artist - Sharne Gregory - I will have the full photos of the butterflies posted tomorrow in my weekly update. But if you can't wait :o) until then you can see Sharne's butterflies on her blog by clicking here
