Getting ready for December GeeTAG

Our last meeting of our creative textiles group for 2018 is coming up in December. It was suggested we work on our own versions of 12 days of Christmas in a tin. The tin I had at home has a kombi at the beach so my version will be 12 days of beach, very appropriate as we move into summertime. I walk on the beach most days with our rough collie so have lots of inspiration to draw upon.

I created a concertina book and tea stained one side. (the bits of paper are the corners I cut -hoping to get a negative).

And the book in the tin (not glued yet as more work is to done in the book). The opposite side shows some fun with paints, dyes and salt at the recent Geelong TAFTA textile forum.

Appropriate colours for the sea and beach I think. I often collect debris as I walk on the beach – I try to take at least ‘3 for the sea’ pieces of rubbish. Yesterday there were lots of seagull feathers as well as the normal lolly wrappers, lollipop sticks, cigarette butts, micro plastics and bits of rope and string. I will incorporate these into my book with stitch and print.
