White on white

White on white
Isn’t it funny, how one gets an idea/inspiration for a theme and then proceeds in an entirely different direction! This happened to me when I chose “White on white” for the current round of swaps in Postmark’dArt I originally planned on using “safe” Candlewicking or even Montmellick type embroideries THEN I started moving outside my comfort zone I thought of the wool and silk batts I have that are (more or less) WHITE. Take note of the “more or less” After I had needlefelted a couple of 4by6 inch blanks for the postcards, I found that the “white” silk I had used actually had pink fibres incorporated in it! These fibres weren’t visible in the batt, only when the fibres were felted together!

Below are two attempts: N/f base with digitised machine-embroidered design and hand embroidered embellisSilk needle felted back groundNeedle felted back ground


  1. Love what you are creating, both pieces are fantastic! hugs, v

  2. These are fab Maureen! And who said they have to be completely white? These definitely ‘read’ white on white. In fact, I think having a hint of another color makes them more appealing.

  3. Both are beautiful. Unless the theme Has to be w-o-w I see no trouble with something so lovely. I rather like the touch of colour.
    Having it in the second one enhances the background of space.

  4. Beautiful. You really are so clever! x
