The reason I have always hated sampling is because my samples seem to come out so much the same it seems a waste of time!!!!!! I HATE IT, HATE IT, HATE IT.
Here we have the sandwich mentioned in the last post - beneath the top layer I added some spirals made from a two tone fabric. I stitched yellow free motion spirals all over the surface, then held down three more spirals on top with purple free machined spirals. I then zapped the piece with the heat gun so that some of the under fabric colour would show through. The next sample - same sandwich this time with organza spirals under the surface fabric and stitched with purple spirals. Then Zapped with the heat gun. Added some more organza spirals and stitched with yellow spirals. The descriptions sound so different and when you look at the samples separately they are OK but put the two side by side and to me there is not much difference (bearing in mind the flash makes the left hand sample spirals shine a bit). SO what is the point????? I quit for tonight - going to watch CSI. Maybe tomorrow the third sample will be different!! I HOPE.!!
