Art Every Day, Monday, January 28th, 2013
Here is today's new piece. Normally I crop the photo so that it looks neat and tidy on all sides, but the bits hanging over the edges of the top and bottom of this piece are playing vital roles so I wanted to show you the whole thing.
Today I wanted to continue playing with embellishments and began this piece by laying out strips of dyed rayon ribbon in a mix of yellow through blue green. Once the ribbon was stitched down, I added the flow of cheesecloth and lightly stitched it in place then glued on the string of bone beads.
I like it overall, but find the placement of the beads a little too predictable. I might add some more, but, maybe not. I do like how the color in the strips of ribbon are playing off as negative space. I will likely explore that some more.
