Bonus surface

I stepped out back to turn my non-traditional Shibori as it dries. The pipe is suspended between two patio chairs with a drip pan under it, the bottom of which is lined with a piece of fabric.
I became very interested in the fabric in the pan as the drips began to merge. To some people it might look like a mess, but to a fiber artist it is another canvas to work on.

Using one of my foam stamps (I make my own stamps) I stamped a few leaves here and there. I laid a small piece of tulle down before stamping at one point (See tiny black poke a dots, sort of leaf shape).

I will over paint the piece at least once more so the white fabric will be gone and then who knows, maybe cut it up!

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
