Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. This week’s Magnified Fragment is D4. So without further ado, let’s get into it and have a look at the enhancer we’ll be using. I’ve also included links to some resources you might find helpful for this week.
This Week’s Magnified Fragment is D4
Here’s a quick sketch of what the fragment looks like as a reference for you.
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to use the Moquette technique
This week’s Magnified Fragment Enhancer is to use the Moquette Technique.
The Moquette Technique was introduced to us by Sandra Strait of Life Imitates Doodles.
Put simply, the Moquette technique is where you apply heavy and dense hatching to the background and lighter hatching to the foreground (your patterns). It creates an interesting texture and look to a tile.
Some resources to help you with this week’s Magnified Fragment
Sandra has an example of the technique and explains more about it in her blog post on the topic. It’s located here.
Eni Oken also visited this technique in a tile she completed. You can read her blog post about it here.
Hopefully this gives you a good idea of the technique we’ll be using.
If you have any ideas for an enhancer, leave me a comment and we’ll feature them in upcoming fragments.
It’s never to late to join in, the more the merrier. Just tag your tile with #MagnifiedFragments and I’ll see it, share it and add it to our gallery.
