Technique Applique
"In the context of sewing, an appliqué refers to
a needlework technique in which patterns or
representational scenes are created by the
attachment of smaller pieces of fabric to a
larger piece of contrasting colour or texture."
This textured backing is a bit then, on the "real'" thing it would be richer.
This surface stitching is not appropriate to this piece....

Grid :
Dennis observed about ancient arts that affected to process of design . She tried to combine different culture together to create a new piece of her work. She used strong and weak hue to make the stroked effect, which it is very useful technique. It's can make dimension on the plain space, which has movement and depth.
The Maya believed that clothing could transform a person and a person could transform the garment and is expressed through it, so naturally clothing was of great cultural significance. They would often make textiles to enhance religious power.
Mexican art is visual arts that developed over the geographical area.
The dots (sometimes called 'over-dotting') were used to obscure the secret iconography (symbols) underneath.
Motivation & Inspiration
"symbol of Venus traveling to the underworld"
"Aboriginal art is based on important ancient stories."
a grid is a structure (usually two-dimensional) made up of a series of intersecting straight (vertical, horizontal, and angular) or curved guide lines used to structure content.
Lynne Dennis was a member of the Embroiders' Guild, a society of textile designers and artists which began life more than 100 years ago.
The University for the Creative Arts is hold a collection of archives and special collections which students can use for inspiration when creating their own sketchbook.
Lynne Dennis' sketchbooks mostly dated from 1986-1994, and consist of a collection of 18 sketchbooks in total. They included inspirational, ideas, samples of textiles, paintings, sketches and her analysis notes for each project. They are an interesting from the perspective of art history and personal ideas.
Dennis used cross stitch to produce a diagonal stitch by using X-shape, which showed in the file of sample fabric.

This technique can be use to create two-dimension pattern, which is one of the smallest motif in embroidery.
Hand embroidery
These materials can produce many style of pattern, which can adapt to used for print textile.
Lynne Dennis sketchbook 's showed the role of textile designer and creative skills. As a designer, Lynne have to do many research, which help to generate an idea to develop her design. Dennis' design development is depended on two main factors; how an individual designer prefer to work and what is being design for.

Sketchbook is a tool to collect memories and ideas of artist and designer. It is a journey of designers that push ideas of creativity which help to find a real identity for the great piece of their work.
