Good Afternoon Again,
Here is today's new piece. Part of it was done while filming DVD's last week. Since then I've gotten continually sicker with a nasty summer cold, got it all; sore throat, ear ache, snot, cough, body aches and fever. But I managed to do my artist studio duties at the Denver Art Museum this weekend. It almost killed me, but no luck!
So, I had to get some of these dailies done. They haunt me and when I don't get them done some of you scold me (mostly good hearted niggling, but.....). This one began with the layered piece in the middle. It started with a layer of sheer paper, topped with melted dryer sheet topped with ripped decorative papers in red, gold and blue violet, all held together with a light brushing of fabric sculpting medium. Once it was all dry, I stitched the feather down the center with gold thread and added some stitched circles.
Then, I set it down on a piece of blue violet paper which I in turn set on top of some red dye painted batting. Then I added the inlining and outlining of the feather, some blue circles and a bit of perimeter stitching. I kinda like this one, not too fond of the color way, but like the layers a lot. It's busy, but I'll do more with the paper/dryer sheet layering and learn how to keep it more harmonious.
