Rust Samples

I often read the website TextileArtist.Org and they recently published a post about making samples to explore textile art. Since I'm often dissatisfied with what I produce I thought I'd follow their advice and I must say it did help me find some new patterns I like and might use in the future. I chose to use some scraps of rust dyed cloth I had left over.

And some close ups.

The idea is that you limit yourself to a few materials and techniques and then play with them to try to achieve different outcomes. It's a really good way of experimenting and I should do more of it but I always have grand ideas so I probably won't!
