Something made from my deconstructed cloth

It isn't much, but I wanted to try to so a small piece using some of the cloth. I picked a piece I didn't like, probably not a good idea. I added some beads, embroidery and sari yarn (silk). It reminded me of ocean flora which I believe one day we will be harvesting for food. I called my little (8.5 X 8.5) piece Sea Food. I hope to see much more of your experiments. Deconstructed screen printing is the nexus of artistic intention and serendipity.

This week I am working on another deconstructed piece as well as sketching out and planning another piece that I made in a dream last night.

  3. I like it! The beauty of Complex Cloth is that you can improve fabric in so many ways... and you have just demonstrated that with this piece! And I agree with Quilter Beth... must get some sari yarn!

  6. The thread is Madeira Lana (50% wool and 50% nylon) which is one of my BEST purchases ever. The sari yarn was from ebay.

  9. I do like the loose watery look you got, and I too can 'see' the 'sea'. This stitching looks like such fun. I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. Thanks. My work is similar. I am all about the surface, but I begin with fabric collage. Please stop by and see what I do with the smallest scraps @ kbartdesigns.com
