June JQ planning

For this and the next 3 months JQs must contain lettering. I'm still working from my Jordan inspiration and want to combine screen printed and embroidered script with ideas drawn from some interesting rock dwelling entrances.
My first trial was based on tea dyed cotton which was screen printed and block printed before I appliquéd shapes to represent the entrances. While I really liked the ideas I was not happy with the colours and this led to a second experiment.

This time I used a magenta dyed piece which I screen printed with gold script before appliquéing the shapes. On this this piece I also used free machine text.
I much prefer the magenta trial and plan to use this for the final piece.
