Work in progress – trying out a new method

Another new piece on the go. I’m trying out double width strips, these are about 10mm wide, cut into sections and shifted slightly. So, on the right we have the colour scheme (with some strips of iridescent bling mingled in…) then the work in progress piece shows the first two rows in place with the second row shifted one place to the right. I’m thinking that the next row shifts back left to bring the strips back into line, then we’ll see where it goes…

⁠I’m already liking the random patterns that are appearing where colour flows between the verticals where the same strip overlaps, and also those distinct boundaries where the strip falls short. I do love a bit of serendipity…
