playing around

This weekend I have allowed my self some play time,
When I am working on a project I always have other bits around that I work on in stages, this velvet had been foiled a while ago, and while working on something else, I wiped my brush which was loaded with Daler Rowney interference colour, to see what it would look like, I liked the result and so painted the whole length, yesterday I decided to stitch into it,this is my first play result, more to come

Very, very nice. What type of velvet is it - cotton or silk? I love it standing upright like in the first photo - would make a gorgeous vessel. And in the second photo it would make a wonderful bag.
Did the paint or foil flake off when you machined into it? Did your machine put up any resistance to sewing into the paint and the foil?

This is lovely, Carol - very textural.
