Well respected textile artist Jae Maries shows how to bring dynamism into your textile work with the use of contrast: contrast in colour, contrast in materials, contrast in imagery.

The techniques explored are very simple and are described through step-by-step instructions which can become the basis for work in greater depth. Paper techniques translate to fabric and stitch and the book's concentration on the use of contrast will electrify your work.

Discover contrasts by painting, cutting, knotting, knitting, weaving, wrapping and stitching.

The page 67 riddle

You can see from these details of the pic on page 67 that the letters of the words 'Still Life' are used as texture - hiding within the stitching. A large 'L' for 'Life' encloses two sides of the work.
