Melissa shares an original Transparencie she wove.
According to Melissa "a transparency is a picture that is woven by inlay design into a fine open, plain weave ground cloth. Traditionally, the inlay is also plain weave. Any loom can be used. Linen is most often used for the ground cloth with the inlay yarn in either linen or wool." Melissa designed this cartoon with an eye on utilizing negative and positive space. For this piece her ground cloth is linen with wool inlay.
This photo does not do justice to the airy, gossamer look and feel to this textile.
