Summer Project Time, Rolling Dunes

drying silk organza, dyed with madder and instant coffee (use what you have!)

Its summer project time! I am trying to imitate the rolling sand dunes in my home province of Prince Edward Island. I am using layered silk organza. I used a stitch resist to form wrinkles during the dye process which i am reinforcing with thread. This project doesn't have plans to become clothing, I am working a lot more on textile pieces and a lot less on clothing lately.

 I am working from memory but this is what the wind swept dunes look like

The translucency will allow you to see the sewn in folds on the layers below, showing the ever changing sandy dunes. We'll see how it turns out! i am going home tomorrow and hope to get some work done there on it!
