More Raveling on Facescape #1

It's starting to come together.  All the major elements are in there now.  

Loki likes to help.  ;- ]

Time for a stretch break.

Need to lay off for the night.

Unraveling the Face

Sometimes you unweave more than you weave (technically I guess that's not possible, but I did do a lot of unweaving yesterday trying to get the face just so).  Not there yet, but better.

The black line was too thick so I reworked it in a finer thread.

Now I'm battling with the mouth.

 Time to move onto another portion of the tapestry before I get too frustrated.

The lines might be a little too thick on the face.  I'll try swapping them out for something finer.

Facescapes ~ sketches

I've started a new mini-tapestry.  I call the theme facescapes.  Here are a couple of pastel sketches.

This is more or less the composition I'm going with.

Luna Luce

Hanging on the wall.  I'll start making the grouping shortly with Lucy's pieces.

Weaving Tabs

Wove tabs to hang the tapestry.  Attached them to the top.  Could have been longer, but this will do.  I'll have to dye or stain a dowel about that size.  Should work just fine.

Lucy ~ Face Scape

Based on Lucy Seaman's space scapes, another variation with my moth.  This time with a face in the nebula.

Not specifically Lucy's face, but based on it.  I'd like to capture her smirky smile.

Thinking I might make it wider, also have the warp go the long way.  That would mean weaving the image on its side, but why not?

Or maybe larger face in proportion to the moons and moth.

Smaller elements.

Face is a little weird.  Definitely no kohl.

Some thoughts. Eyes ~ beads on white buttons, eyelids woven over the top.  Moons buttons, moth shell beads.

Moons can hang over the edge.  Trailing path of the moth ~ might be extended over the edge as well with wire or supp. warp.  Interesting idea.
