You can get a peek of my latest Tangled Textiles challenge piece in the upper left corner- but you will have to visit the Tangled Textiles blog tomorrow to see it, and all the other creations from the group.
I'm already thinking about what background matte color will work best with this piece. Thank goodness for PSE! I figured it would be easier to audition background colors on the computer. I'd originally thought a deep, dark red would work--
but I'm not sure about it. So I tried a dull green--
and a brighter gold--
I even tried a grayed blue--
In the end, I think I've tentatively decided that this dark brown works the best- it makes all the colors pop, rather than sapping some of them. Two and a half yards of cotton are stewing in a dye bucket right now, to be washed out shortly. We'll see if I still feel that way when I can see it all in person, rather than on a computer screen.
Which color background do you think works best?
