Collage inspired yarn (4.5)

I have chosen to work from just one collage for this segment. This collage has contrasting textures and simple but interesting colours.

Button yarn was fun to do but pretty time consuming. The flower motif was not the most relevant but it was all I had in that colour. Woven yarn was tricky because of the delicacy of the ribbon and is fairly uninteresting. The glued collage tape on the right references collage more clearly and I was able to also incorporate the shape in the original collage.

On the left is rug hooked elastic. I consider this successful as a technique but to be honest it doesn’t link back to the original collage very well.

Finally I have a multilayered glued yarn. I was trying to reference the layering in the base of the collage with the blue sitting on top. It doesn’t do it for me. I would have been better using tissue paper as in the original collage for a better layered effect but I didn’t have those papers available at the time.
