It could be because I put my work down for a couple of weeks and lost my 'flow' - my family filled the house over Easter, I worked, and then I tidied it all away... big mistake.
It could be fear - but I thought I was over that now.
It could be the strain of a deadline nearing.. this was set by my tutor (and I am grateful to her for keeping me on track), but I also travel to the UK in a weeks time and I really want to have this finished, packed into its little red bag and sent off by then.
So, I have got out my work from Stage 4 of Project 4 and am determined to select some designs that can be translated and developed on to fabric.
Stage 2: Selecting your design ideas
Having looked at my work these are the images that I feel have potential to be worked with on to fabric.
Design Idea 1:
I really liked this image, it has already been developed from a sketch, this process was shown in this link: project 4, stage 2
|Design idea 1|
Design Idea 2:
Shell 1: I like the shape, the markings and the contrasts in colour
|Design idea 2|
Design Idea 3:
Shell 2: This shell has an interesting shape, texture and lines.
|Design idea 3|
The repeat pattern shows new shapes created from the negative spaces
Design Idea 4:
Shell 3: I like the texture and shape of this shell
|Design idea 4|
I feel better for having made a decision..
I am going to start working on these designs tomorrow.
I deliberately didn't use my design ideas during the Interlude experiments so that it would make this stage clearer and less confusing..... I remember thinking that that was a really sensible idea... If only I had remembered it!!
