Your Weaving Story: Janice Boiduk
I created the pattern from I photograph I took last summer while birding on the Tantramar Marsh, New Brunswick. Weather was getting rough and the clouds started forming just as the sun was setting.
I couldn’t wait to get started and soon had thread in hand to created all the colourful blends.
I even made swatches to see how each blended yarn would visually react to the colours next to it.
Started off with blended greens, but to get the texture of the farmers fields I blended other earthy shades, browns and blacks.
Moving up through the sunset became very tricky as I wanted to crest the illusion of rain on the horizon.
The main body of the tapestry consists of storm clouds. The cartoon that I followed was well payed out and a great help in creating the illusion of the thunder clouds.
And I call it ,”Thunder Over the Tantramar.
