The base fabric is yellow which I dyed myself. It was dyed with a natural dye of skin of pomegranate and tumeric.
|the yellow is a little stronger than in this photograph|
I painted the yellow fabric using a colour I created myself with the Colour Vie paint system. I stamped it using repurposed plastic to create a pattern.
|so far I am very pleased with it|
Then I took a walk downtown and saw this!!!!!
|paper used as lining in the store window at Chanel in Toronto|
How can it look so similar to what I am doing? Isn't there anything original anymore?
I will still continue on my path with this piece but how discouraging!
