Whilst looking online I came across this woven wallhanging by Elodie Mra a Textile Designer who specialises in Weaving from Paris. The photo on the left is a black and white preview of a wall hanging called ‘Sea Breeze’ however I just love the grey scale shades and is something that I would like to incorporate into my piece, by making some lines darker and thicker than others to add more detail. However the colour version is equally as interesting as we want to incorporate the colour blue to areas of detail. I would like to try and stitch the blue in rather than printing with it. After seeing Elodie’s wallhanging I like the idea of even stitching into the print on my acetate in some places to add a bit of texture, using a thicker wool along with regular thread. Our only colour that we are using is blue which can be in any shade so I would like to try and stitch the blue in rather than printing with it.
