I always try to avoid block repeats when I’m working with simpler motifs as it ends up looking far too basic and ugly. With this kind of piece I think it works though, especially once I started playing with it a bit more. The design in the last two (the second one’s just there to give you a better idea of how it looks) is one I’m particularly happy with.
Stenciled kimono. Late
Meiji period (1900-1911), Japan. A rinzu
silk kimono featuring stenciled kiku and kaede (chrysanthemums and maple
leaves) in combination with a spiral stripe pattern. The soft rinzu (damask) is
decorated with a woven chrysanthemum motifs. The Kimono Gallery.
This handmade Traveler’s Notebook was a Christmas gift for a very special someone! Made from this awesome black leather with a damask print, it has a handmade tassel charm with moonstone, and purple pearls.
These journals are available for purchase on Etsy!
@kaypickle and I rocked this today! Went from the plain panels you saw in the other video to this. With an airbrush, we added the damask pattern to the fabric then added trims and went back with the airbrush to weather the hell out of them. Everything looks so good, I can’t even handle it.
