Celtic Playtime

Dragon Clasp
As usual playtime at home following the workshop produced some interesting results.  Crayola wax crayons were used to colour a traced pencil outline on Abaca Tissue that had been adhered to a felt background using Bondaweb.  This was then coloured with a wash of Walnut Ink.  Free machine stitch was applied to the dragon outline in various colours.  The background has also had some Markal oil sticks applied to it and a dark wash of Quink ink.

The celtic motifs at the top of the piece were drawn onto a piece of iron-on pelmet vilene with a Sharpie felt tip.  These were then coloured in using the Crayola wax crayons.  The outlines were cut out and ironed onto the background.  Further work is needed to integrate them into the background and make them part of the overall effect instead of just sitting on the top.
