My newest inspiration - week 25 of canes

Hi Everyone,

No cane for this week. Instead I thought I'd show you what I'm trying to figure out in my head. This picture is of a skirt that I love that a friend at work has.

The image isn't the greatest because I took it with my cell phone camera. And it really doesn't give a feel for how vibrant and wonderful the skirt looks.

I've decided that the cane is going to be done in shades of translucent. I want the lightness of the colours to really show through. And it's going to be a cane that gets overlapped onto the background somehow.

The translucent idea came from me recently having watched one of Donna Kato's videos.

I don't think I'll get as complicated as the paisleys in the skirt. Instead it'll likely be more of a suggestion of paisely.

I have some ideas on this that I'm going to play with a bit. I'll keep you posted.

I'll be interested to see what you come up with. I wanted to try and do something based on the blue pottery I found but have never quite got it together yet.
