I've been making more leaves. Not with realistic colours, but they're samples to find out what works and what doesn't so I use whatever I have around. I've also been playing with some leafy surface patterns on silk covered vilene. Maybe these would be good for the bottom half of the box, and have a Goldsworthy-ish leaf pattern on the lid?
I've been playing around with leaves today, for my memory box. I'm not really sure where I'm going with it yet, but I've been playing around with potato printing and done some sketching. Hopefully it will all start to come together!
All the pieces are made and laid out now, ready to stitch on to the quilted background. Then, I just need to put the hanging bits (technical term), on the back, and bind the edges. I'm thinking about making a scrappy binding, depending on how much fabric have left.
