Creatively I've had a very busy year so far and I will soon spill the beans...
I started playing with Mandalas last year and decided to make two cushions for our living room which can also be used as teaching samples. I'm scheduled to teach another Design a Mandala workshop in May in Port Elizabeth and really need samples.
I love the pencil and paper aspect of mandalas, somehow I find it comforting to see how a design develops on paper before I actually start cutting and stitching. Maybe it is a control thing as I can navigate balance, scale and proportions better...!
I made the two cushions to lie on the seats of two cane chairs to add some colour in the room. As the rest of the furniture is upholstered in beige, it screamed for colour, so I used the colours in the floral curtains as my palette.
