Stuff I'm workin' on in the Studio

I'm exploring with texture. These pieces were constructed with a wire mesh (chicken wire) frame. Woven with strips of hand-dyed cotton muslin and then dye was again painted on after they were woven. I later took raw wool and hand rolled it into loose yarn and couched it into the piece to create another layer of texture and color. This has been the new experiment I've been working on the past two far so good. I'm now curious what will happen if I take some woven work, over dye it with a dark hue or black, and then roll a lighter color or white wool into loose yarn and couch it into the surface. How will the contrast work with the texture?
