Sorry for the delay in posting this – I started a while ago and then got distracted. The design focus for Module 3 is colour and this was to be combined with an historical theme. I really struggled with this module. I started on a number of ideas before eventually settling on Pictish standing stones. No matter what I tried it didn’t seem to work quite as planned and consequently I wasn’t particularly inspired by my designs.
The craft element we were sampling was applique (including traditional hand applique) which is not a particular favourite of mine, and I was probably a bit hampered by thinking about how my designs would translate. After a while though I felt that I had put too much time into my design work to change theme again and got to a point too, where I felt that I just needed to get on with it!
So I’ll share the best of my designs and some of the developments into applique. I’ve already started Module 4: Texture which I’m finding much more inspiring, so hopefully I’ll have more to share soon 🙂
