Okay, I’m at the very early stages of a project, and I need a little help. I can’t really explain the entire end destination for this, as that’s a little fuzzy right now, but I’ll tell you what I do know, in the hopes that it will kick start the whole thing.
I have this collection of fabric:
The piece at the back will be the background, and then in the foreground I want to create an applique of a vintage camera. Actually the precise camera is also a little fuzzy, but probably something like:
I’m thinking of using some combination of the bottom fabrics to make up the applique – I liked the idea of the different textures, the 2 on the left being leather, the next 2 being cord and the final one denim. It doesn’t have to be made up entirely of these either, but if you have another idea, you need to provide a link to where I can get it ;o)
So the question is, what combo for the camera? Answers in the comment box please…
Um, tricky. I love the idea of mixing fabric types (one of my favourite things). Leather might be a pain to work with? Felt could be a good option…..and I'm sure you know where to find it! Juliex
Reflective leather for the lense and view finder, deep blue cord for all the black parts of the camera. The rest will be fun for you to have a play with!
Lol , good luck with that!
2nd and 4th from the left would make great camera bits.
Seriously – you make the coolest stuff !
All these sound amazing!! I love the leather for the lens!
Really like your idea of using mixed textiles. I think the middle camera would look fabulous with sketch applique. Jxo
I think the camera choices are great. I am less enamoured with them on the background, and wonder if they will blend in too much. If the background is not set in stone, I wonder if you can change it to a blacker black or maybe to another colour all together. Or maybe your camera will be framed and separated from the background some other way?
brown felt would be brill for the canon camera, but whatever you do, will be great
Oooh leather (or faux leather) for a rangefinder camera body would be awesome. If you've not got the right colour I can send you some if you like the thought. Here's the sort of style I was thinking of http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTUwOVgxNjAw/z/BGsAAOxyHE5RuGKg/$T2eC16V,!zUE9s38+!Z6BRuGKgK-Rw~~60_35.JPG
I like the black leather with the blue cord.
I haven't a clue, sorry, but it's a brilliant idea.
I love the one in the middle – the Canon – even have some Joel Dewberry Aviary wood grain fabric in bark brown and yellow! I could spare a bit!
