Today I’m sharing four little pieces; you may have seen a couple if you follow me on Instagram. three may still be works in progress (wip). I have really enjoyed working on these tiny pieces. They are made from scraps of other projects and some on pieces of fabric I have had for ages but could never find a way to use until now.
This free motion palm tree on painted sky fabric was from my Needlevember a while back. Now it’s matted and framed.
Mixed media – Stained and painted cheesecloth, dyed silk, stamped dragonfly on silk organza, felt cups, grape wreath vine, and some embroidery.
Below is a piece of fabric I stamped, painted, and printed real and faux leaves, and I’ve have had it for years. Now I will be able to get more than one little piece from it. The one below (wip) has a paper clay leaves (rubbed painted) and beads are from gifted (for altered art) jewelry, silk, and embroidery floss stitching.
You may recognize the painted burlap in this last piece from a previous post and the metallic paper too. I’ve also added fabric coils held on by French knots, and more floss stitches, all on black cotton.
I especially like your last two pieces. Maybe it’s those buttons. And small pieces have the big advantage of taking up less room.
Beautiful pieces of work, Ann!!
Yes, small pieces less storage space, thank you. I do love using my coiled fabric “buttons.”
Thanks for the inspiration! I love the palm tree and the buttons.
Thank you, I’m glad to know you have been inspired.
