I’ve been commissioned to create a “Welcome” banner for St John’s Church in West Byfleet, Surrey. I plan to use mainly recycled fabrics with embroidery. The brief is to create something colourful and eyecatching! So.. I’ve started by preparing the background… old linen tablecloth dyed saffron yellow. I have also started on the samplers which I will cut up and use for the letters.
I have used bright acrylic paint onto “Bondaweb” to create a textured background, which I will then place onto the yellow linen… more later..
