Here is today's new piece and I am in love! I began with a piece of red cotton that I had discharged with large circles printed with a garbage piece of plastic that was inserted in a large glass container that I had bought and small circles printed from a toilet paper tube. I layered it on top of yellow orange silk gauze which was on top of an orange/red orange piece of silk noil which was on top of a piece of dark red violet cotton which was on top of a piece of yellow dye painted batting. Whew....
I stitched right on top of the small circles and just inside the inner line and outer line of the large circles using a pale yellow thread. I did not stitch anywhere else.
Then I started cutting away layers of fabric to reveal the layers beneath and viola! Woe that I do not have more time! I really want to make this piece big. I love the depth, the color, the circles. I love it all, but what I love most was the absolute simplicity of the process. Sometimes the easiest things produce amazing results.
