Playing Around

I have been playing with alot of new techniques for me but maybe old to you. Layering paint, joss paper and fabric then sewing it all together. I thought I wouldn't like the sewing part but really enjoyed it and plan to make many more along this line. I like the idea of embedding things between layers of voile.

I have also been creating fabric patchwork on art panels and finishing it off with an image transfer. I usually make a transparency of the image first so I can see if it works with the fabric combination. Of course I leave nothing untouched. I went back in with collage, paint and conté crayon.

I find that winter is the best time to experiment since it is dark and cold and I would rather be at home. I get a lot done this time of year.
