Continuing my work with threads, as I get ready to work on my new series, Fences and Nests, I tried using black fabric as the background this month. Using white paint, I monoprinted the pattern of a construction fence, and also through the holes in the same fence. Then I attached it to a board, traced the printed pattern, and then applied a "skin" of threads on top.
The piece is a bit dark. I thought the thread colors I chose would work well on black, but now I wonder if I should have chose lighter colors instead of brighter ones. Hmm. I think sometime soon I'll try making another one on black with lighter colors and see how it looks.
So far, my favorite thread piece is the one I made in April. I'll work with white fabric for the Fences and Nests series. Or maybe I'll do a group on white and then another on black? I'm not sure yet.
